On the perch, I thought I saw a shadow between this German Rollers toes.

When I looked at the bottom of his foot, I saw that fecal material was caked under his toe. If not taken care of promptly, the circulation would be compromised and a toe could be lost. Wash with warm water to loosen fecal material before removing.

Notice the color of the leg near the band. Click on the photo to enlarge. He still has plenty of band room but it is time to remove the excess dead scales.

A little mineral oil rubbed from my finger to its leg and the scale comes off easily.

Notice the tip on this German Rollers beak. Trim it careful with trim fingernail clippers.

Ready to go a courting??
