Budgie with sore foot

by Colleen
(QLD, Aust)

Our young budgie has hurt it's foot somehow. Was fine yesterday. This morning found it on the aviary floor.Picked it up and seems like it has a sore foot. Can fly, but can't land on a perch without falling down, so we have put it in a shallow box with padding with food and water out of the weather on the aviary floor.

Not sure what else to do as we are not in a great financial situation at the moment to be able to pay expensive vet bill. Your help would be most appreciated.

Editor's Note: I am sorry this took days to post, our system has been down.

What you are doing is the best I can suggest without knowing what is wrong with your bird. There are so many things that could be causing these symptoms.
