budgie parakeet's hurt foot
My male budgie parakeet has had trouble with a hurt foot in the past but later on he started using it normally. One week ago he seemed to have hurt that same foot again. There is not discoloration in that foot, he is eating normally, and he has no trouble flying. He just doesn't use the hurt foot and I don't know what to do.
His female companion doesn't help the situation by continually forcing him off his perch and not letting him rest. We have started to leave the cage door open at night so that he can sleep without being disturbed by her, but it has started to get chillier and chillier in the evenings.
Please let me know what I should do to help him and whether I should take him to a vet.
