Hey guys my little boy gave me a heart attack last night. He somehow broke one of his nails really short and i thought he was gonna bleed to death. Ok so here is the story I work every night from 2pm-8pm and my hubby works from 8am till 8pm I got home after work and checked on my birds my little boy was covered in blood i mean covered from beak to tail there was blood all over the cage ropes and floor of the cage. But still as soon as he saw he he came to the door to come out he always does i panicked and grabbed him out of the cage. At this time i did not know where the blood was coming from so i grabbed a towel and a warm cloth so that i could wipe down his beak and chest feathers i have the vet on speed dial so i called the vet my hubby was an hour away just getting off his work. So i had no way to get to the vet so i phoned him. So anyway the vet was asking me all these questions about my little boy like can he perch without falling and all these questions anyway by the end of the 1 hour phone call we had the bleeding stopped and found that his nail had broken and that as long as it doesn't start bleeding again he would be fine and if i had any problems to phone him right away anytime of day. I love my vet. So i stayed up with my boy all night and he is fine he keeps coming to the door of the hospital cage for cuddles he is eating and drinking so all seems to be good i also had another surprise but that story will be in babies and mutations. Here is a pic of my baby boy after he got cleaned up. Oh and cornstarch works very well in a pinch for stopping bleeding. I will be putting together a bird first aide kit i have lots of things just in case but i do need a few more things.
