Cockatiel has hair wrapped around foot
My cockatiel has hair wrapped around her foot and it looks fairly tight although there isn't any swelling or seems to be bothering her, we've tried to get it off but she struggles too much, should I leave it or take her to a vet?

You can gently wrap her whole body in a light cloth. Usually when a bird's head is covered, they settle down quite well. Then try gently removing the hair. The foot isn't swollen yet but if it does, then the increased swelling will reduce the blood flow even more causing potential damage to the tissue. Plus the hair may cut into the skin. Don't wait too long. I'm pretty confident with a little patience and good light, you'll be able to get the hair off of there. If not, then take her to the vet.
