A scratch on my budgies leg

Hi there,

I've only had my budgies (a boy and a girl) for a couple of month and never had any birds before, so any help would be most appreciated.
1) One of my budgies seems to have scratched his leg just below his palm-where his claw would touch when he's climbing the cage bars. He's been more active last couple of days and probably a bit less careful. Is this something i need to take him to a Vet for? or is a small scratch likely to heal by itself?
2)When i first got my budgies, they were most definitely a couple, but now the boy seems more keen on me rather then his mate. Is that something that needs to be dealt with? I don't want the female to feel left out...
