    It is great to hear there are people who will take a little
    Budgie. to a Vet. In my opinion if any living creature
    depends on us for it's living then we owe it the best but
    sadly there are many people only take the more expensive
    birds to a Vet. so you get my accolades Marcos.
    In my opinion birds with friends who they love do better kept
    together even if one has an injury as long as the companion
    bird does not peck the injured part but then you will keep a
    good eye on them.
    All the luck in the world to you and your birds mate.
