Please help me with my parakeets

Well I have 2 parakeets that my daddy just bought me and I have some health concerns about them.

When I got the first bird I opened the box and she flew out when her wings were clipped so she fell on her wing I guess and now she holds that wing away from her body and wont mess with it. Is her wing injured and how can I help? My second parakeet is good I just wonder about his toes. His toe nails are brownish kind of black and is there something wrong with that? Any answers are appreciated. Thanks!

    Hi Gwen,

    Definitely take them both to the vet- it’s good practice to take new birds to the vet also in case someone sells you a sick bird. Please don’t ignore the wing or nails- birds can die from simple injuries if left untreated.

    Goodluck ^_^

    Hey, I have a quick question about my parakeet. I got her yesterday, so I haven’t named her yet. So she has been acting strange, and I want to know what her emotions are. She sits up on her highest perch, and sits there. She preens her feathers a little bit, then gives some cute little chirps occasionally, But then out of nowhere, she starts making that loud sound I think they do when they are angry. I don’t know what to do for her. She is either lonley, sad, mad, or SUPER scared. I don’t know what to do.

    PS I got her from a friend, so she is used to people
