my cock mates with its son!! while there is a female budgie in cage too. it started a week ago when the chick had a crash with wall while flying and he can not walk properly since that time. chick is annoyed while its father tries to mate with him. and stays in nest to avoid its father. i separated them but i fear that in absence of cock, the chick would not grow properly . what should i do? after one week since the crash, only one of chicks legs are working properly and he is crawling on the floor and barely can control its walking .

You still haven't said how old the chicks are, im assuming if they can fly they could well be old enough for you to remove the nest box. The nest box could be the cause here if dad wants to go in for a second clutch he want's the older chick gone. If they are not old enough to remove box try removing mum preferably to different room where the male can't see or hear her and see if dad settles down and finishes feeding the chicks.

i told chick is 6 weeks old. he can fly. i removed nest box from cage today. chick sleeps while hanging from cage and fells down dad is making sexual intercourse with its son, is it right to put them together and separate the mother?
i have putted dad in another room but he and chick are calling each other. it is a very sad situation
Dad will just have to get over it; try sprinkling seed over the bottom of the cage paper for the chick to forage on. Soak some seed as well and offer this is a separate pot. Start adding fresh vegetables for the chick to learn to eat from, but if the bird can't walk I really don't have a lot of faith in the outcome. Any decent vet should be able to determine broken or dislocated bones.
We are not Vets, Avian or otherwise. If you have any serious doubts about your budgies' health an appointment with an Avian vet should always be your first point of call.
thank you friends. i find a vet in another city and i will show the chick to him today. also i will buy a new cage and separate the chick from parents. chick can eat and eats more than its mother and father
hi again guys my chick budgie is doing well now. he can walk. and i have put them together, with his mother and father. most of the times i open their cage door and let them play outside. male tries to feed chick and sings for him nonstop and tries to go on chicks back but chick cries and runs away.
