    We just finished hand feeding our around 5 week old budgie. While we were feeding him, he leaped towards the spoon and ate some of the formula when it was too hot. We took it away immediately.

She seems perfectly healthy, but this is worrying me. It looks like it's inside the bone? Possibly a ruptured blood vessel? No blood has come out...
