Thank you, I will not be having them clipped again. The wing still is not laying flat, But she is back to her spunky self today, and has eaten more today than since Ive had her. she even stole a spinach leaf off my plate

I have another cage that is not as tall as the one shes in now, and is longer in length for more floor space. should I swap cages until her feathers are back to normal? that way if she falls its not from very high up?

It depends on how well she is getting around the cage she is in currently. If she is climbing from place to place easily then it isn't necessary for you to move her into the other cage.

If the wing continues to be held at a strange angle, then taking Daisy in to Avian Vet to be examined is your best option.

Avian Vets have special training to determine the cause of symptoms resulting from illness or trauma.
This is important as "regular" vets will often overlook symptoms that are quickly obvious to an Avian Vet.
When you rely on anyone who has not had training in Avian diagnosis and care, you may be delaying effective treatment.
This can prolong suffering that may be avoidable.
The bird will often require a more intense, prolonged treatment with a poorer chance of full recovery than it would have if you seek prompt professional diagnosis and treatment at the first sign of illness.

If there are no Avian Vets near you, please find an Exotic Pet Veterinarian with experience in dealing with small birds.

Having your budgie examined by an Avian Vet allows you to develop a good relationship with the vet in case your bird needs care for an injury or illness in the future. Additionally, it is always helpful for the vet to have a baseline for your bird to refer to should it need future treatment.

Her wing is back to normal today! I found a twisted feather in her cage, I suspect that is the culprit.

I am so happy to read your sweet girls wing is sitting normally again. I would definitely contact this ‘breeder’ that clipped her and tell them what a terrible job was done. They have no idea what they’re doing and hopefully telling them (nicely) about your experience will stop them from ever trying to clip another poor bird again.

I told the breeder I found a wonderful online community, with individuals who are always willing to assist in any situation, and gave them the website name!

That's great.

Hopefully the breeder will decide to join the forum to learn more about best practices in the care of budgies for their optimum heath and well being.
