Broken or Fractured Wings and Legs

Birds with broken limbs need immediate veterinary care.

If your bird has broken or fractured a limb, gently and loosely wrap the bird in a towel to immobilize it and to prevent it from causing further damage. Keep the bird calm, and take it to the veterinarian immediately.

makes it hard to take it to the vet when your income is limited and don't own a vehicle and the vet is out of town.
