Poor Rainbow... hope he's doing ok. I've heard of many birds with missing toes doing very well, even birds who have lost a leg (tho in all the cases of a bird losing a leg, the owner let them be flighted after the accident).

You may seriously want to think about letting him be flighted (if he isn't already), especially if the leg injury makes it more difficult for him to balance or climb around. At the very least, he should be clipped as little as possible.
