So, about two months ago, i got two sweet little budgies named BlueBell
, and i've been working with both of them to gain their trust.
Recently, I thought that perhaps i could take them out of their cage, at least take them just outside their cage to get them used to the idea of being able to go outside, with their door being open so they can just as easily fly back in. This worked for a couple of days because both were too scared to stay out any more, until today, when Sunshine panicked and flew across the room and landed wrong on her tail and i heard a crunching sound and my heart sunk.
After a bit of chasing her around the room when she was stationed and literally climbing my kitchen counter to catch her, (surprisingly, i was able to pick her up and take her back into her cage) I was able to assess the damage.
Her feathers are still attached but they're crooked, i don't see any blood or any signs of her being in pain (i think), she still moves around her cage, eats normally and is still preening, however i do notice that she sometimes fluffs up and shivers, something i haven't really seen her do before, as a result i'm worried that she's in a lot of pain.
