Will my bird attack his injured mate?

I have two parakeets who are mated and one of them recently got injured. My friend said that the other birds will attack him (I have another two cockatiels who are now seperated from my two parakeets).

Will my female parakeet attack her mate? I won't be able to take him to the vet until Tuesday.


Turns out he didn't break his leg, he was just acting like he did.

    I'd get the injured one to phone the domestic violence hotline but, budgies in that situation need to help themselves, if they won't they won't.

    She might just keep an eye on them.  You need to get him to a get sooner than Tuesday . Not sure what sort of injury he has but if it a wound then infection could set in and if not caught earlier enough can quickly spread and kill him.
