    Urgent Help!

    This evening, I saw that Blue, my green and blue budgie, had blood around his eye. I think that Holly, my white male budgie, has pecked at him. But Blue has blood on his claws as well. He has been acting pretty territorial recently. What do I do? Please help!

    Urgent Bleeding beak?!

    There is a small dot of blood inside my conure's beak. It's easily visible as she has a horn beak, and it has grown larger over the past three days.
