Hello, I recently(Tuesday night) purchased a 2 year old(according to the previous owner) Nanday Conure from someone. I noticed that on his right foot, his front left finger was injured. I contacted the person I got her from and she told me it could just be a sprain and to just let her rest and it will be ok. Its now been 4 days and I dont see any signs of improvement. The finger is completely motionless. I havent seen her move it yet. And she limps when she walks on that foot, as if it hurts when she puts pressure on it. When ever she is sitting she always lifts the right leg, much different then most birds who lift both legs randomly when they rest. I just need some experts to tell me if it is infact broken or is it just sprained. Can it heal on its own or is there anything I can do to help the healing process. I wouldve taken her to the vet but I was promised a perfectly healthy bird and I spent all of the extra money I had on my budget on the Nanday, a new cage, food and supplies and I wont be able to take her to the vet until after March 2nd. Is there anything I can do? I added some pictures from Wednesday. Thanks for your help.
It would also be nice to hear from someone whos had a similar problem in the past. Thanks again.

- the finger stays like that all the time. Completely nonfunctional, atleast that how it seems to me.
