What do you mean there is a hole in his foot? Does it look like a red wound? What type of perches does your budgie have? It's possible what you are seeing are Pressure Sores

I would take him to an avian vet to get him checked out. Members of the forum can only guess as to what is wrong with your bird, we can't diagnose him.

Also in future, post threads about health concerns in the Diseases and Illnesses section of the forum.

From your description it sounds as though y our budgie does have a pressure sore/bumble foot.

iHeartPieds have give you the correct links to learn about this problem.

What type of perches are you using?
They should be natural branch perches of varying sizes and diameters (not wooden or plastic dowel type perches)

Please have your budgie examined by an Avian Vet.

Avian Vets have special training to determine the cause of symptoms resulting from illness or trauma.
This is important as "regular" vets will often overlook symptoms that are quickly obvious to an Avian Vet.
When you rely on anyone who has not had training in Avian diagnosis and care, you may be delaying effective treatment.
This can prolong suffering that may be avoidable.
The bird will often require a more intense, prolonged treatment with a poorer chance of full recovery than it would have if you seek prompt professional diagnosis and treatment at the first sign of illness.

I use wired cage with big size and have a natural perches in there. I have only two budgies with 2ft X 2ft X 1.5ft size cage. If he has bumble foot what is the treatment. I have the only problem that there is no professional veterinarian in my area for small birds. Today I clean the foot with anti-septic lotion and put some antibiotic ointment which we used for us. Is this okay with birds?

You should check if something is safe for your bird BEFORE you use it. I'm unsure if the ointment is safe. Even if you don't have an avian vet in your area, it would be best to seek out an avian savvy vet. Meaning a vet that sees all creatures but is also familiar with treating birds.

While it is very challenging for people who live in countries with no Avian Vets, there are steps you can take to help ensure your budgies' health.

With the right motivation, you can work with a regular or veterinarian to get the proper care for your budgie(s).

You will want to do as much research as you can and learn as much about budgies and the best practices for their care so you can provide your little ones with the best possible life.

We have a member in India who has done this and has developed a great relationship with a regular vet.
With the member's research and the vet's collaboration, they have found ways of providing care for her budgie that she would have not been able to manage otherwise.

When you develop a good relationship with a regular veterinarian, that individual can collaborate via telephone or Skype with Avian Veterinarians in other countries if necessary to get assistance in appropriate diagnosing and prescribing treatment for your Avian companions.

Did you read the information in the Budgie Articles before "self-medicating" your budgie?
You should never use anything on your bird without first checking to ensure it isn't going to do more damage than good.

I can't see the foot/leg well enough in the second picture to know if he has bumblefoot.

The first picture isn't showing up at all.
