budgie parakeet self injury?
I woke up this morning to find blood all over the cage of my two male parakeets. They acted perfectly normal, they are eating and drinking and chirping, etc. One of them though seems to have blood on the tip of his beak (which needs a trim soon, he is getting older) and disheveled feathers near his tail, with a little blood there too.
There are small splatters of blood on the perch, the bedding, and a few tiny drops on the floor and wall outside their cage. This might be something of an emergency but I don't know what else to do and I don't think we can afford the vet right now...please help me.
I don't remember hearing a commotion in the middle of the night, and everything is perfectly intact. Last night I made sure they were sitting on their top perch before I turned the lights off, like I do every night, just so they don't try to move to their sleeping spots in the dark. I would try to investigate myself but they are very easily frightened and will not let me touch them. I would a very high risk of further injury if I were to try to catch him.
I just need to know the possibilities of what could have happened. Please, please help. Please.
ps. I would take pictures but our camera recently broke :(
