Default Hurt wing...I think

My budgie Albie flew out of the cage when I opened the door. When I went to go catch him again (gently I might add) he seemed to look off. When I put him in the cage his one shoulder looked higher then the other and he was holding it out, not tucked in. My question is did he break it? I already called a vet and they said to watch it and make sure he's eating. He still fluffs his feathers and hops around with his buddy Avon. He also grooms it and lifts it up. Just want to be extra sure he didn't hurt himself badly. He's got no tail so that just adds to the stress of it all.

Thanks!

I'm not sure that any of us will be able to tell from a picture.

He could have bruised or strained it, but there's no knowing. You'll have to keep an eye on him and pay the vet a visit if you become concerned.

Did your budgie had a bumpy flight or an accident where he crash landed?
From the photo you have posted I'm not seeing anything abnormal.
Sometimes, after they fly, some of the flight feathers can be a bit dishevelled, but this is something that they will quickly take care of by preening the strayed feathers back to place.
After flying a few laps and landing they can also momentarily exhibit heat from the exhaustive exercise and they can slightly have their wings further away from their bodies.

If your budgie is preening the wing and stretching it normally, then all is well and there is no broken nor dislocated wing.

Sorry I couldn't get a better picture. Hiwe buddy Avon is always on the side of him that has the possibly hurt wing and they freak out whenever something new comes their way. Still trying and failing to train them.

He has no tail feathers at the moment so his flight was very bumpy as we're his landings. I'm thinking that's how he hurt it or something.

Update: Albie is fine. His wing isn't broken and he's back to being a little ham just like normal.

That's really good to know, I'm glad Albie's wing is back to normal!

Since there no longer is a sense of urgency, I'm moving your thread to the Follow-up Center section.
