Default Tiny cut on foot

We've been out for a couple of hours, came back and Bobo's seed pot has been emptied everywhere, blood on her perch and a tiny cut on her foot. I've washed it with plain water and it's no longer bleeding. I've checked her over and there are no other injuries (do budgies have blood clotting issues as there seems quite a bit for a 2mm cut)

I think my little acrobat has gotten caught up somewhere but I can't see where or how. There are no sharp bits in, on or near her cage. She does seem spooked so I've covered her over to calm her down. I will keep an eye on her today and tomorrow and if she's not right I will pop her to the vet.

If the cut starts bleeding again, put a bit of corn starch or flour on the cut to stop the blood.

It would be a good idea to start your birdy first aid kit at this point in time.

I'm moving your thread over to Follow-Up
Please update us on Mr Bobo's condition tomorrow.
I'm sure she'll be just fine.

Thanks Faerybee. I saw about cornstarch/flour the other day so I have put some under her cage close by. She's eating and drinking fine even though she's annoyed at me for manhandling her. I just wish I could see or feel on the cage where it happened

It's hard to say how it happened.
It's good that you have checked the cage, toys and perches for any sharp spots.

There is possibility she could have cut it with one of her toenails or even on a particularly sharp point on a seed hull.

I know just how scary it is to find blood in your birds cage.
