Unhappy Banged up wing.

One of our 3 budgies, Deeno, got a little over-excited today and, on his glide down to the floor from my daughters shoulder, bumped his wing on the furniture. He is now occasionally holding his wing out from his body. There is no blood, no outward sign of injury, and he seems to not be inhibited in flight at all. He doesn't have any reaction to us touching the wing either. We are over an hour away from a vet that handles small birds, so I am really hesitant to put him through the car ride if it's not a dire emergency.

Any advice or ideas?

I'm sorry your budgie had a flight related accident. If the wing feathers look normal and are well aligned, then for now it's best to place your budgie back into the cage, cover the cage on 3 sides and let him recover from the ordeal.
It's normal for him to be stressed and feel a bit of discomfort on the wing.
To help reduce the stress levels you can have some soothing music on low volume.
Keep on monitoring your budgie and see if he is able to stretch the wing and preen the area normally. Hopefully very soon the discomfort from the crash will no longer be felt and all will be well.

If with time you notice an increase of the discomfort, then having your budgie examined by an avian vet specialist would be the best thing to do.

Good luck!

For gender and/or mutation help - Lighting and Angle DOES matter

By the way, all photos entered in any of our forum contests must be a full-size photo and not a thumbnail attachment so it's good to know how to upload them!

If you have any questions after reading through everything, please be sure to ask!

Be sure to update us on how he does! I hope his wing is back to 100% soon.

Ack! I never came back to update this thread! Deeno is doing just fine; after a few days in a small cage by himself and with lots of TLC he was back to his normal, hyper-active self!
