You might want to make a hospital cage with a heating pad under the cage ..take out all perches or leave one low enough so if he falls it wont hurt him ..lots of good fresh food with clean water :strhng: I would try an emerg vet as well ...

There s no emergency vet available near by.I dnt know what to do..I applied turmeric. it didn't work. But it will help for infection I think so.. I am giving Hot compression to the inflamed leg.

What was the accident did he fly into a window or something

can you see if he’s gripping with that foot can he grip your finger ? I am not sure if it’s broken or not

you really need a vet is their no chance to get him one sooner

I agre with @Tyrion set up a hospital cage

@Zara @Mizzely @Shezbug @Pixiebeak hoping one of these amazing people can give you some advice but I think you really need a vet

Try calling back and explain clearly what has happened. Wednesday is a long time to wait for a bird to see the vet. Ask if there´s any way you can be squeezed in somewhere as your bird is injured and likely in pain.
Calling and asking for an appointment puts you at the back of the line, sometimes the vet can see you before that if they know what´s going on.
edit, you could also try emailing them that photograph and asking they please show the vet.

Please call the vet you are planning on seeing, ask if they have any emergency appointments. Basically the only thing you can do is keep him quiet hydrated and warm like hospital cage. Do not use any over the counter medicine because the dosages are too hard figure out

This is an emergency because this bird is suffering from an injury. You are the guardian of this bird so do call back and let them know you need an immediate vet exam. If they do not respond to you ask who they recommend. If the leg is fractured or broken time is of the essence. This is not a treat at home type of injury.

im so sorry your baby was injured ! Im so sorry the veterinarian isn't understanding the urgency.

I wouldn't touch the hurt leg or put anything on it.
I would roll up in a loose roll a wash cloth or smal towel in a c shape. And place that around him on his un injured leg side . To sort if support him and he can lean on it if needed. But leave the space open around the hurt leg.
I might try clipping a heating pad on the outside side of cage on low. Maybe even put a sheet or pillow case on the outside of bars then the heating pad on the outside of the sheet on the outside side of the Cage. Making very sure he doesn't over heat as he csnt move away. Making sure no plastic will melt or any fire risk.

You can put a soft folded towel on cage bottom with newspaper over it in case of a fall. The hospital cage as suggested is a good idea.

Im sorry for you loss.

Accidents can happen when they are learning to fly. Even when taking precautions with windows and mirrors.

I ultimately lost a budgie who spooked inside his own cage...just managed to hit his head wrong....

Im really sorry this happened to both of you.
Big hugs
