Welcome to talk budgies. Sorry to hear of your birds accident. Was this an avian vet you visited ? No finding's on x rays is a positive but was anything given for possible swelling from head truama ? It sound's as if this injury has caused neurological issues and all possibilities need to be addressed by a competent avian specialist. I would suggest going back to the vet ASAP. Please keep us posted...

Well if you have confidence in this vets abilities, maybe a call back to talk about ongoing symptoms and reason's for those and possible further treatment would be your best course of action. Prayers for your little birds full recovery...:hug:

I can only say I am thrilled with your care for your budgie. They are resilient little bird's and I'm sure because she has a caring owner like you, she is going to lead a wonderful life...:)

UPDATE: I took Jaja to an avian vet today where she took another X-ray. She couldn't determine an physical injury to the bird, but did conclude she got a concussion from the window and therefore has some neurological damage. She basically said that it's unlikely Jaja will ever be able to perch, although she can still fly she cannot land when she is flying (only on a flat surface). Has anyone had a similar experience? What is the best next steps from here? Jaja has a friend named Binks, and I have to seperate them as Binks will go a bit overboard and sometimes peck Jaja, and then they start to fight.

I thought of buying a guinea pig cage, apply ramps and a nice bed for her... Is this the best way?

EDIT: I'm good with building so I thought of attaching her current cage to the top where she can climb up to where another ramp would be (as I know birds like to be high up rather than on the ground).
