Re: Emergency - need help!!!!!

I have tried cooked rice with corn, some small seeds, and he can't seem to open his mouth very much.
he's hungry but can't eat.
I hand fed him some formula, which was difficult since he can't even open it enough for the tip to go in, but I managed to get a little into him.
He has a vet appt. @ 12:30....will keep you posted.

Re: Emergency - need help!!!!!

Oh my gosh Beth....that just made me sick to the stomach! Poor, poor NumNum. I know how dear he is to you.

I truly hope your avian vet can someone mend his beak. It looks quite bad even though the picture is blurry.

HUGS to you!!!!

thanks Wendy- the blood was just dripping last night, something I never want to go thru ever again.

I just posted some current photos of his beak.

Re: Emergency - need help!!!!!

It happened to one of my GCC where my bigger bird did the same to her through the cage. It happens in a flash. It was also looking like num-num's but upper beak. What you see hanging is usually the beak's keratin pulled away from the fleshy part of the beak. Typical when the bird pulls away from the aggressor. Often that piece will die and they can cut it. But so soon, there's usually still some feeling so it's a wait and see.

For food I would mush everything in the food processor, so that it's soft, not liquid. Scrambled eggs mixed with it.

Good luck at the vet. I asked mine to inject her a pain med before handling the injured beak.....

good idea Echo, thanks for all the advice, I really appreciate it.
I found blood on the polly perch chain, and I'm wondering if he got his beak stuck in one of the chain links? there is no other blood in the cage except for there. I'm taking the link with me to show the vet to see what he thinks.
