It's great to see the new pictures of darling little Connie! Such a cutie and I'm glad she is doing well.

Now for some unfortunate news.
Discovered this morning that Connie is missing the nail on the rear toe of her left foot.
This can only of happened within the last two days. Her toe was fine on Jan 8.

There is no evidence of blood or much of a wound.
The toe looks like the corresponding one on her right foot, except without the nail.
Connie appears unaffected by it.

Naturally my first concern is that she will be all right.
Secondly, should her nails be trimmed before reaching their current length?
Comparing her with other budgies, I didnít think her nails were overgrown.

What other reasonable measures can be taken to prevent it occurring again?

Would greatly appreciate anyoneís feedback.

I can see a little bit of blood there on the quick of the nail, but there isn't any active bleeding and she's obviously fine from what you describe. What I imagine is that her nail broke off at some point, probably during vigorous playing. Either way it's good to hear that she's doing well. I wouldn't worry about it since luckily she's doing just fine, but maybe give her cage a once-over and double check that there's not anything she could have gotten her nail caught in.

Does she have perches of varying width as well as texture? That will help to make sure her nails are generally at a good length. They're maybe a tiny bit on the long side but not anything ridiculous.

I agree with Starling Wings.

Did you see blood anywhere in the cage or the room?
Is there fabric (table coverings, curtains, etc. that Connie lands on during her out of cage time?
It's easy for a budgie to get a toenail stuck in fabric and the bird will often yank on its foot trying to get the nail to release.
Unfortunately, sometimes the nail breaks rather than coming loose from the fabric.

I'm glad there was no extensive bleeding and that Connie seems to be doing well and is active and happy after her injury.

Thank you Starling Wings and FaeryBee for your response and advice.

Itís a bit of a mystery to me how it happened.
No sign of blood anywhere that I can find.

Strongly considering getting another (better) cage for her. Hurriedly got her existing cage, as I was totally unprepared for a bird at the time I found her.

She does have perches of varying width and texture, but will improve it further.

I will do anything to ensure Connie has a safe, happy, and stress free life.

Itís so lovely to see a Connie update. She has obviously settled in beautifully and the two of you are developing quite the bond. Sheís such a pretty girl and I hope youíll continue to share more photos of her.
