Hi there and welcome to the forums,

I'm very sorry your budgie got injured. When having our pet birds outside in their cages, we must be vigilant and close by due to the many dangers posed by predators.

Given the fact your budgie was injured due to the crows attacks, it would really be best if you could have your budgie seen by an avian vet specialist because he/she may need medication to prevent infection.
For now, you can wash the wounds with sterile saline solution and afterwards apply Betadine to disinfect the affected areas and to promote healing.
In order to help reduce the stress from the ordeal, you can cover your budgies cage on 3 sides, leaving the front part uncovered and have some soothing music on the room.

If you are unable to locate an avian vet, then you can go to a regular vet who can contact an avian specialist in case further input and advice on the best course to take is needed.

I'm wishing your budgie a full recovery.

thanks for the reply @aluz, i tried applying betadine though he was getting scared and running here and there so i didn't want to stress him more, but he seems better from before he came down to eat as well, but i will try to apply betadine once again after sometime also would you advice applying styptic powder?

these are the pictures of him i took before, the first one of it's toe the others are of the wing

To stop bleeding, you can apply cornstarch instead of styptic powder.
From my experience in dealing with injured birds, I prefer to use Betadine to disinfect wounds and help with healing.

I'm very sorry to hear your budgie was injured and hope he will have a full and speedy recovery.

We recommend that you never leave your birds' cage outdoors unless you are there with them for this very reason.
Predators can and will quickly harm or kill budgies even when they are secured in their cage.

Please be sure to update us on your little one's condition.

Best wishes

Yes i know, it's my fault he got hurt..... Should have been more careful,
I'm trying to apply betadine but 1. He starts panicking, 2.what ever i apply he licks away...

I don't know but right now he seems bery angry whenever i or the other budgie goes near it starts bitting...
Thanks for the wishes though i'm trying my best to make him comfortable

You can simply rinse the wound areas with a sterile saline solution and then leave him alone.
He needs time to recover from the trauma of being attacked.
You and the other bird aren't helping if you are fussing over him.

It might be best to put him in a separate cage away from your other budgie so he can have some peace and quiet to heal.

You can also offer him millet soaked in an electrolyte solution.

If you don't have any on hand, you can use the recipe in this link: https://talkbudgies.com/articles-budg...te-recipe.html
