  1. The budgie I'm hand rearing has formula drip out of the sides when he is eating. I wipe it off but it has gotten large chunks in his cheeks and on his chest feathers. His cheek formula is connected to his skin so I can't cut it all away. His chest some of the feathers came out, stuck to others with formula. I cut that out, but then I saw what looks like two feather ends stuck under his skin, and they were bleeding from the tips. They stopped after not much blood, but I don't know what the things under his skin on his crop and how to deal with the large formula. They are too small to be cysts.about half a cm. Mum says when he moults it'll fix itself but he is only three weeks old. I can't afford a vet.

  3. I breed budgies in my aviary and I recently hatched a bunch of four. One of the budgies must be aggressive because 3 have sustained injuries. 2 have healed up nicely with some medication, but one received injuries to its lower beak. I gave it some antibiotics before going away for 4 days. I came home today to find the swelling gone, but one side of the beak is disconnected from the chin. I was planning on hand rearing one for the first time after owning budgies for a year and Im going to do this one. What will happen with the beak? He doesn't make any noise whatsoever that I have heard, while the others in the nest do. He is about 2 and a half weeks maybe? Im not sure how to upload pictures, this is my first post. Also any tips on hand rearing will be appreciated.
