Unhappy Broken beak.

Hello everybody!

Our caique has broken its beak. We don't know how exactly it happened. He was flying to sit at the door and in this moment a small girl closed it. The upper part seems to be ok. The lower part lost all its kind of cover part. It went of like a cover. It was bleeding first day and then stopped. There is a small thin part of beak as it were a base of a beak. It has a cleft coming from the middle part to the left. 5 days have passed. the clef looks a little bit bigger than before. It seems the parrot started to clean the beak today and it started to bleed a bit again on the tip of it and then stopped. He eats enough. the beak from the sides looks a bit bigger than on the first day as if it grew a bit. But in the middle part there is still this cleft, which comes to the jaw.
We don't have any good vets working with birds here in Moscow. It's better not to go to this kind horse doctors. So, all we can do is to do everything by ourselves.

Question 1: Our parrot is very brisk and doesn't like, when anybody do something with him. We need to clean his lower part off a special pap, which we've got from parrot nursery. It sticks to the lower part of the beak. Are there any special way to hold the parrot or fix it to be able to make procedures with its beak without harm to its health.

Question 2: Is it possible to repair or glue this cleft? Perhaps there is this kind of material, which usually dantists use when they fill the tooth?

Re: Broken beak.

Answer 1: Wrap him up in a towel, then place fingers around the base of the head.

Answer 2: Yes, but unless you know what is or is not safe to use, I would not recommend doing so yourself. Could you possible do a consultation via Skype with an avian vet????
