Re: Something odd on head!

If you can get your hands on a styptic pencil (I got mine from a pharmacy)) they’re great for stopping bleeding. Blood feathers don’t break all that often really though, I think in 50 years of bird ownership I’ve only had 2 or 3. In extremes I’ve pulled the feather out to stop the bleeding, but only in emergency if I cannot get to the vet and nothing else is working. But it’s not recommended to go pulling wing feathers out as they are very firmly attached and it would cause your bird great pain if you did that, it would be like someone pulling your finger off! So in a case like that you’d have to get her to a vet, but it’s rare so don’t get too worried ok?!
