Ensuring one provides proper vet care is part of the responsibility of pet ownership.

Many Avian Vets will help with working out a payment plan and you should always have an "emergency fund" put aside to cover unexpected veterinarian costs. Save part of your allowance, any money you receive for gifts and any money you may earn.

Talk to your father and ask if you can do additional chores to earn the money. Explain that your budgie is a living creature that is needlessly suffering.
As aluz has explained, if the budgie is not treated, there are high chances of it never being able to use the injured leg/foot and be permanently disabled. Worse case scenario, the injury on the broken leg can infect and if not properly seen and without medication, you can even lose your budgie.

Sending healing energy and prayer for your little budgie.

Please let us know how things progress. :hug:

Truthfully, if your father isn't willing to allow you to provide your pets the proper medical care in times of illness or emergency, I believe you would be better off waiting until you are on your own before having pets.

Any animal that is kept as a pet deserves to receive the care necessary to ensure it a healthy and happy life.

Splinting her leg without the proper knowledge of the technique and ensuring it is in the correct position can do her much more harm than it does good.

Are there any Bird Rescue Organizations or Zoos near you?
If so, contact one of them and ask if they have an Avian Specialist who can provide advice and assistance.

At this point, it is up to you to do everything in your power to find a way to ensure poor little Shinchan receives the care she needs. I hope you will use every resource possible to do so.

I'm glad Shinchan is doing better and hope she continues to improve.

You may not be so fortunate in the future.
I strongly suggest you get a plan in place in case your budgie ever has another illness or injury.

You need to find an Avian Vet in your area.
Go in to meet the person and establish a relationship with them so if there is a future problem you have someone to help you.

You should have a first aid kit set up:

And, start building up an "emergency fund" to pay for any medical care your pet(s) require.
