alright so the craziest thing happened today, a male budgie :budgie: flew into my kitchen and i caught him and put him in the cage with my other male budgie (named Bluetooth) and they seem to get along just fine, but the thing is the new bird has some sort of what looks to me like an infected wound. his toe looks swollen and covers the claw and looks infected like he was injured in a fight or something. i really don't know what to do to treat him please help me

here's how it looks like

Infection like that could kill the bird. Take it to a vet for antibiotics.

He might be fine on its own and then he might now. He does need antibiotics. If you don't know of a vet that can sell you some, please go online and get a good wide spectrum antibiotic that you can put in the water [it will not harm the healthy one but, in all honesty, you should not have put a bird you don't know if it's sick or not with a healthy one].

You should have quarantined for a month. You could have put them in different rooms but let them be able to call to each other.
