Exclamation HELP baby budgie doesn't have a bottom beak

I just found one of my baby budgies, fully feathered, in the box but had blood. I removed him to another cage thinking the mother must be harming him. After watching him try and eat and then try water I now realize he is missing the bottom part of the beak, what can I do? Can I hand feed him anything, if so what, can he learn to eat I'm
N his own?

More information is necessary --

Has he stopped bleeding yet? If not, you need to get the blood flow stopped.

Is the entire bottom portion of the beak gone?
If so, then the budgie may have to be hand fed for his entire life.
I suggest you have him seen by an Avian Vet as soon as possible.

Is the mother the cause of the injury?
If so, you need to remove her from the cage and allow the father to continue feeding the babies until they are fully weaned.

Yes it's stopped bleeding, it's all just dried. I didn't realize it wasn't there til I watched him drink water and shined a flashlight under his beak. I thought that one of the parents may have started harming him due to the handicap. Is here anything to feed them without having to hand feed its entire life?

As I indicated, you need to see an Avian Vet with him.

An Avian Vet will be able to offer advice and options on the best way to feed him and the types of food to give him and answer any other questions about his condition.

And, you didn't answer my question -- is the ENTIRE bottom beak now missing or just a portion of it?

There are procedures where Avian Vets can make prosthetic beaks for budgies but I'm sure that would be quite expensive.

Without knowing how much of the beak is remaining and whether or not it too is severely damaged, it is impossible for me to speculate on whether or not the baby will be able to learn to eat on his own.

PLEASE contact an Avian Vet right away and get him in for the proper diagnosis.
I'll be praying for him.

In the meantime, you are going to need to be giving him food and water to sustain him.

With the right owner, willing to devote the necessary time and attention to him, he should still be able to live a happy life.

Please let us know what you find out from the vet.
