Hello, I am new here. I have now 2 budgies (both female).
I have a question:
3 weeks ago one of my budgies was flying and landing on the ground. I think to hard because suddenly she couldn't move her left leg. We went to the vet and said it was not broken but bruised. With a lot of rest it is going better. And her budgie friend was very sweet to her :budgie: !
Sometimes the legs looks stiff but she can use her foot en climbs again. And she is happy, chatty, eats and drinks well.
Only when out of the cage I am afraid she lands wrong again and hurts her leg...again... what should I do?
She is a little handicapped, has a deformity in her spine maybe it has some relation to it. She is almost seven years old.

Hi and :welcome: to Talk Budgies!

I'm glad you took your budgie to the vet to determine her leg wasn't broken. :hug:

Do you have a small room with carpeting in your home that you could limit her to during her out of cage time? Carpeting would cushion her landing a bit and if the room isn't too large, you could also put down a blanket or two as well.

To familiarize yourself with the forums, please take the time to read through all of the How To Guides, the FAQs and the stickies located at the top of each section of the forum.
You'll find most of your basic questions are answered after you've read through all of them.

I'm looking forward to hearing all about your budgies and hopefully seeing some pictures :photo: soon!!

Hello and :welcome: to the forums!

Your little girls are very pretty and I'm happy to hear her leg was only bruised.

I'm wishing her a speedy recovery and Deborah has given great advice on how to keep her comfortable.

Please keep us posted and feel free to ask any other questions you may have :)

Great to have you on the forums! :wave:

Update

Thanks for your answers!

It's a while that i've been here....

Our room is not big and we have some carpets on the floor

Max her leg is doing fine now.
The first time out of the cage after the accident I practice with "little fly-outs". I mean I get her on the finger from the top of the cage. I walk away from the cage and she flies back. Everytime a little further.
I will not force her, she has to fly by herself.
Now it's a fly around in the room again... :)
