I think you do need to take your budgie to the vet. If not, then you can get some advice online from vets. They do ask for money, however. But I think thats the best you can do.

Unfortunately, due to the nature of the injury this is not something that can wait or be fixed without professional medical attention.
Please try to reason with your father, by not allowing your budgie professional medical care, your budgie has high chances of 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.
This is an emergency situation and only a qualified avian vet can potentially correct your budgie's foot and prescribe much needed medication to alleviate pain and prevent infection from happening.

I agree with everyone, your budgie needs to go to an avian vet. Try to work something out with your father to repay the cost. Prayers for your little bird...

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.

I agree, this is not something that can be dealt with at home. Unless your father is a qualified avian vet (which I'm assuming he isn't) you need to get her to the vet as soon as possible.

Please keep us updated and I sincerely hope she's able to get the care she needs!

I gave her all sorts of environmental assists I can,still I feel so bad I cannot do anything more for her :'(

As much as we would like, sadly we can't magically heal your budgie's broken leg/foot and put it in the correct position if need be. We are not certified avian vets and this isn't a problem we can fix through a computer.
If you are unable to give your budgie the proper medical attention, then it would be best to find someone else able to cater to your budgie's needs or an animal rescue organization to collect your budgie.
By letting this situation drag, your budgie's health is at risk. If the leg "dies" from lack of medical care your budgie will be at risk of losing her life.

I guess it's my last option.. atleast she will be better..

first of all thnx for your love guys ...
shinchan is looking a little better than last time,

Should I apply some kind of splint in this case or any other medicine I can give to her?any specific diet ??
