Default I noticed my budgie was bleeding

A couple days ago I noticed blood in my budgies cage so I took him out to check and saw blood on his back, just above the base of his tail. Grey’s wound has stopped bleeding and I think it might be a broken blood feather but I’m not sure. His poop doesn’t look normal either. What should I do and what do you think it might be? I’m worried.

Here are some photos of him.

I would have an avian vet look at it. I cannot really tell what I am looking at in the pictures, in some it looks as though there are droppings stuck and in the last picture it looks like there may be something going on with the preening gland.

I agree with Cody. Your budgie needs to be seen by a professional to determine the cause of the problem and the proper treatment protocol.

Let us know how things go with your Avian Vet.

If there are no Avian Vets near you, then you should take him to an Exotic Pet Veterinarian that has experience dealing with small birds.

How was the vet visit? What is the prognosis for your budgie?

Hi there. I ended up going to the vet today. She cleaned the scab and gave us painkillers (Loxicom) and antibiotics. She said it was probably my other budgie that bit him and the trauma from them pecking at it made it bleed and clump up like that. I’ve kept them seperate since I noticed the bleeding and she said to continue to do so and to bring him back for a check up in a few days.
Hopefully it heals fast.

You'll need to keep the two birds separate from now on since one has been aggressive toward the other.

Make sure each of their cages is large enough for them. The minimum for one budgie is 18"x18"x18" but I always recommend you get a bigger cage if possible. A 30" Long x 18" wide by 18" high cage is a decent size for one budgie but even bigger is better!

Best wishes
