    Was this an avian vet? Did they do xrays, he could have
    something pinched inside his leg, it is so hard to guess, and
    like stated none of us are vets. I know 2 of our macaws had a
    battle and one bit the others ankle and foot, vet trip and
    liquid stitches on the bottom, but her whole foot and ankle
    stayed a littel red and swollen while she was on the meds until
    they worked.
