Do you know what the injury was where the original scab came from? Was he picking at it? You might want to thoroughly examine the cage to assure there are no sharp pieces sticking out anywhere.
No one here can diagnose or act as a vet. If it is still bleeding you can try applying and pressing a bit of corn starch on the area. If it is anything but a small area, or has trouble stopping bleeding, you will need to see an avian vet regardless of whether you want to pay a vet bill or not. Please keep us posted!
I am sorry you lost 3 birds in 3 months. Did you get an avian vet's diagnosis of lead poisoning?
Oh no I'm so sorry.I also agree with Julie .the corn starch powder should stop the bleeding.Sending your budgie healing and comforting prayers .keep us posted and I pray everything will be alright for your budgie.Blessings.

When one owns a pet, you accept the responsibility of ensuring the animal receives the best possible care. If you do not yet have an emergency fund for vet expenses, it would be a good idea to start one.
Your comment about losing three birds to lead poisoning seems to have no bearing on the current problem with your bourke unless you have him in an unsafe cage?
Is there exposed metal on the cage?
Are there sharp edges on the cage on which he could have injured himself?
Is he in with other birds?
We need as much information as possible when there is a problem with a member's bird in order to provide the best possible advice.
The bird is in a safe cage. I have an older bourke in there too. We aren't sure if the older bourke pecked the baby. She hasn't done anything like that in the past 3 years. I don't see any sharp things in the cage. Mainly just mirrors, a swing, a hammock, and some wood toys with bells. We removed the other bourke for now. Right now, Baby seems better with the flour and the bleeding has stopped. I might try the corn startch if it acts up again. No itching so far. Thanks so much for the advice and the prayers =D
Thank you for separating Baby from the adult bird . It's better that way when you have a bird with an injury, and espeically since there is a possibility the injury was started by the other bird. Please keep us updated. Hopefully it was just an isolated event and Baby heals asap!
Baby has been doing great except, He took a bath, and now it seems as if his scab is bothering him. The water was clean. We fiqure that he most likely got hurt by hitting himself at a wrong angle on his perch (missing, instead of his feet, It hit his chest) (Most certain theory) Please help! Have any tips?
Yes, the vet did find lead in one of our past bourkes. He even said he thought it was from the breeder. All the other bourkes from her died in the same way, but not confirmed, they died just before we were on our way to the vet. Other Reviews on that person say their bird from her died in the same way, mysreriously.
We got a new cage just in case. In my previous post, Baby is picking at his scab. Have any tips on helping him stop. The adult is separtated. Our adult female is going ballistic! She is so worried about baby. I was leting her stretch her wings and she flew straight to Baby's cage. She kept flying all around it trying to get in and chirping. Baby kept chirping back. We think baby landed wrong on his favorite perch. (Our theory for how he got the scab) They are still separtated.
