Budgie with injury
by: Tracie

This doesn't sound like an injury. What could have injured it? It sounds like your bird is either egg bound or has a tumor.

You need to get your bird to an avian vet ASAP. Do NOT try to take it out, your bird may bleed to death quickly. If there is a stuck egg and it breaks inside, your bird will die also.

Please use this Find an Avian Vet link to find an avian vet for your bird so it can be examined to determine what is wrong and what the potential treatment might be.

If your bird doesn't eat a high quality pellet diet, then in the future read our Switching Budgies To Pellets article and convert your bird to Harrison's or Roudybush pellets and you won't ever have to worry about egg binding.
