Unhappy Less-abled budgies need new home

Sorry if in the wrong section and if this is not allowed.

I have 2 male budgies which both have different problems.

Blue Barney is a normal blue budgie, i bought him with another budgie which is fine, however i didn't notice how bad his feet were (as the room was dark and i only went for the one bird, the owner kind of threw him on me saying that they were best of friends and must be sold together) so i took him home expecting him to be fine.........his legs are splayed and feet are turned in, i have tried for the past couple of months to accommodate him but i feel he needs a new home, i do not have any pictures of him.
he can fly but has not been out of the cage for a month as i have young chicks and breeding pairs which he scares. he does fall off his perch sometimes but not as often as he used to, it is this reason he is in a breeding cage so he doesn't fall and hurt himself.

The other male is a Lutino namd rosa(bought as a female......turns out male), gorgeous fella but no show winner, he has a sprained/damaged wing, he can fly.....just not for long or very well, he is showing signs of getting better but he needs a better home also as i just dont have the time to cater for his needs with my chicks.

Rosa and BlueBarney get along very well, i call them the gay couple, both help each other out and play together.

all i am looking for is a better home for them where they can get attention and the proper care they deserve (for their needs)
All i ask is for a small donation of 15 for both to cover the money i have spent on food & to pay for the budgie food for chicks.
they are also pick up only as i can't drive from Blackpool, Lancashire
I dont want to see them go but i feel they would be better off somewhere where they can be looked after properly and not surrounded by chicks and grumpy pairs.
They were originally with the chicks in the "growing up cage" as i call it, however they started to attack the chicks so i had to remove them and put them in a different cage

Awh. I'm sorry, they look gorgeous.
I would, but I'm already taking in 2 budgies for Becky(here on the forums), and I'm not sure my partner would be too keen on 6 budgies, and I can't drive, nor have a car, so there's no way I could pick them up.

I hope you find someone that can take care of them.

me too, i feel bad that i have to let them go, but being honest, my breeding pairs and chicks have taken over my life, neither of them are tame so i have to spend ages trying to catch them when they are out, it's just not fair on them :/ i have tried to balance my time but with a clutch of 5 chicks growing up, i also need the space.

They are funny together, they have little arguments where rosa pushes BlueBarney off the end of the perch and when he gets back up, rosa just looks at him and then preens him, and rosa loves his carrot.....he currently has a carrot face

they currently live in a breeding cage (no nest box) so it is hard for them to get to, i am going to be moving them into a new cage but they still need re-homing :/
if someone just wishes to take barney they can for a small donation, he's the one i am mainly wanting to re-home as i can't put him in a big cage because of his clumsiness otherwise i would, rose can go in the big cage as he doesn't fall of perches but for now they are together to keep each other company.

Captin, would you be able to take barney? i can't deliver as i don't drive. rose should be fine here, i can re-introduce him into the big cage now his wings are getting better

I dont drive myself so would need to arrange a lift.

However beforehand i would require disease testing being done to ensure the safety of my current flock, which in turn ensures the safety of all future flock members.

Have yours even been tested for psittacosis and pbfd?
