    Last night my budgie had an accident, the cage was not closed as I was trying to capture this one budgie multiple times so I put my other two inside the cage and left the door open for (now injured) budgie, Sprite, to get in.

    After finding feathers in the kitchen and blood scrapes on the ceiling, we have concluded that she was flying and scraped her head against the ceiling, taking the feathers off.

    She is honestly acting completely normal, playing, eating and drinking. Should I take her to the vet or do I just let it heal? Infection would be the only worry.

    Here is a picture... it looks like some dried/clotted blood in the middle.

    Welcome to AA :)
    I would be going to the vet if that was my bird. That is a big wound for a little bird, antibiotics and pain relief may be needed for the little one to heal.
