      You should give your bird a pause if its not major injury. Parrots having very good heeling power naturally as compare to humans… But if its hurting alot, you can tape him for few days, but make sure taping will not last for more then a day, bcz in summer wound can be bad with taping.
      Thanks, Let me know the present condition…

  8. Skeptic


    Hi thanks for all the useful information. I am a bird owner, so I am somewhat familiar with birds. I have found an injured, of what it appears to be a baby Quaker parrot. He let me pick him up, clean him up and he even climbed on my shoulder the first day(which made me think it is someone’s pet). I put him in a cage, quarantined away from my bird fearing any diseases or infections (i would appreciate it if you can weigh in on that a little). The first couple of days the Quaker parrot was on the bottom of the cage slouched over and sleeping mostly. Three days later he/she seems for active, started making noises even interacting with whistles with my bird. But he seems to hold his right wing lower (hanging) than the left one. The first day when I examined the wing, it didn’t seem damaged and the bird let me do it, didn’t seem to hurt him. Any recommendations please?
