    Hello my dear friends thankq so much for you help before but I have another serious problem now my budgie seems to develop a blister/little red boil underneath her foot. It looks very red and I’m really worried what I should do I don’t have any avian vet available here not even remotely possible. I’m seriously very worried about her. I made her stand on a soft cloth instead of perch since it would pressurise the boil. Please kindly help me

    I was thinking possibly bumblefoot too. What kind of perches does your budgie have in her cage? A lot of cages come with dowel perches. All dowel perches can cause problems with bird's feet because they're too uniform and apply pressure on the same spot all the time.

    Can you post a picture of her foot as well as a picture of her cage showing all the perches? I've heard of birds getting bumble foot but also if she uses a rough pedi perch a lot it can also cause sores to develop on their feet too.

    Most saddest news to all you people who tried to help me. Thanks a lot I really appreciate it but miss blues just passed away yesterday. I’m thinking maybe because she wanted to come out but got stuck in between the bars and we went outside at that time and when I came back she was trying to come out I helped her get free but she died within minutes after that. I was late. It breaks my heart

    Sorry to hear that. The cage was not appropriate size for your bird. A bird should not be able to put it's head through the bars.

    Budgies need a half inch bar spacing so you will know in the future. This is very sad.

    Thank you very much for your support. Actually the cage is not the problem because there’s another bird which has been with me over an year in the same cage. And I’ve never experienced any problems with him. He’s boldy I love him very very much can’t bear if anything happens to him....and he’s left alone now idk what to do...my mum won’t let me buy a new bird (unless it’s exactly like boldy) and even if it is it’s so hard to convince her idk what to do

    FYI birds are not breeds like a dog, they are referred to as species and some budgies have mutations.

    I'm sorry for your loss. :( If your bird got either his head or body stuck between the bars, then the bar spacing is definitely too wide for the size of bird. Another bird may not try to get through and may not get stuck but if it is possible, you should have narrower spacing (1/2").

    The budgie in the picture is a lutino mutation.
