Re: Emergency - need help!!!!!

I'm so glad to hear the bleeding stopped! Wow that pic looked rough! I was telling you not to panic, but I was panicked looking at it! He sounds like a tough little dude, and that will work in his favor.

Re: Emergency - need help!!!!!

Unfortunately it happens often when you have multiple species living together, big and small. It has happened to my GCC breeders and lovebird over the years.

As long as the bleeding has stopped he should be ok until morning. I'm glad you have some Metacam for the pain, that's great!
The vet will give you antibiotics and more pain meds. Sometimes they remove what's hanging, sometimes they tape it. Depends on the wound. Not good pic put I doubt they'll be able to tape it.

Your bird is gonna make it. His beak might need filing every few weeks like I do with mine once it grows back as the injury might make it grow scissors beak.

thanks Echo, I know it was a terrible picture, I just had it on the wrong setting, as the camera is fairly new and still getting use to it.
tomorrow won't come fast enough, I keep checking on him, which just gets him all hyper and excited again, so I'm going to let him be for now.

Re: Emergency - need help!!!!!

omg! Not to take anything away from what has happened to num num, but I was in the kitchen washing dishes and on the phone when I heard all this commotion in my living room. I found both my birds on the floor, fighting. They were rolling around in a ball attacking each other. I was finally able to break it up, put Rio in her cage. She has a puncture wound on her foot, but she is fine. Kiwi lost a few feathers but that was it. It was the most scariest thing to see. And I am so glad neither really got hurt.

I know Kiwi started it, and I ended it. I came back to my iPad and it was still opened to this thread. I sure hope you Num Num will be okay.

Yes best to cover them and let him sleep and rest. Go to the vet as soon as you can in the morning. He will surely need soft food if he already doesn't.

Re: Emergency - need help!!!!!

thank you everyone! I've been very worried about him!!

I checked on Num Num first thing this morning, he seems to be in pretty good spirits considering, but is very quiet.
He's not bleeding anymore, but this mouth and the side of his beak are covered in blood, so it's difficult to tell or see the damage.

just to clarify some things here: it was his beak that attaches to the side of his face, his lower jaw,not the end of his beak. It looked like it had been pulled away from the side of his face.

I'm only suspecting it might have been Safari who might have done this, honestly we will never know as I was not there when it happened. Yes Safari is capable of doing damage, but out of all the birds I have, Safari tolerates my cockatiels the best.
Today I'll be going over their cage again, since I'm thinking a lot better, and see if I can figure this out.

@Mikey-no Num Num was in his cage with Pearl, they have been mating on and off for three days.
@Socalwendy- glad your bird only got a puncture wound and your babies are ok
@Echo- I am currently cooking some rice,corn,peas, spinach, for his morning breakfast
@Kaladisa- thanks, your right he is a tough one, which really surprises me, he's very very special to me and I love him dearly!!
