The bird might have broken a blood feather. A vet will need to see your bird in order to pull the remaining piece of feather out of the wing.

Or could be a possible injury from the other bird. Never house 2 birds in the same cage. Anytime there is blood, this is serious due to the fact the bird's blood does NOT clot on it's own. A bird can die from the smallest injury where he's bleeding.

I understand you may not have the funds to get your bird seen by a vet, but if you plan to keep him alive, you will need to get him into a vet asap.

The vets will stop the bleeding, and clean him up. As well as examine the extent of injury.

If it's a broken blood feather, it will be a low cost visit to the vet. I paid $125 for my Grey when she broke her blood feather. No meds where prescribed. My bird bled everywhere, it was pretty serious. By the time I got her to the vet, She was covered down her right side in blood, I was covered in blood, and I had to come home wash blood off the walls.

Vets aren't as expensive as you might think. Please seriously consider one.
Also you can get medical insurance for your birds thru VPI. (google it) They have affordable plans, and reimburse 90% of cost.

They are the only people I know of who provide medical coverage for Birds. (and I have looked)

Also, Most vets are willing to work with you on payment options. There's no need to let your pets go without medical attn when they need it most.

Good luck!

If you have birds together who fight, separate them into two cages. When your birds are injured or sick, take them to an Avian Vet. If you cannot take them to an avian vet, then you do not need to have birds as pets. Most avian vets will work with you, and you do have to ask before they can do this. To say to us you can't afford to pay much will not get this question answered. You have to find an avian vet and work with them on payments so your birds can have the medical services required by law in every state in the US.

Anytime you see blood, this is a serious injury because birds bleed out and die or die from infections that are not treated.

So, get your bird to an avian vet before he is lost to an infection. It does not matter what you are feeding a bird who needs to be examined and treated by an avian vet because they are going to die from bleeding out or infection from an attack that has been left untreated.

For everyone reading this if you do not plan on ever taking your bird to an avian vet, then find some other kind of pet to have. Even dogs and cats have to go to vet when they are injured or sick, so if this is not an option, have no pets at all. Medical services for children, pets and farm animals is a requirement in all states in the US. To not do so puts you at risk of someone reporting animal abuse which means fines and even jail time. Think about this the next time you decide to bring an innocent animal or bird into your home. Many people report abuse, and I'm one of them. We have to speak for these animals and birds because they cannot speak for themselves. It is our responsibility to report any abuse/neglect we see of animals or children.

Bird bleeding from a fight
by: Tracie

Feeding your bird a healthy pellet diet is always a good idea, but it won't heal an injury. It is best to take your bird to an avian vet, but if you are not going to do that at least make sure the bird doesn't bathe in water that has been sitting in the cage and is full of bacteria.

If the injury gets infected, due to your not taking the bird to an avian vet, then it may not live.

If the birds do not get along, they need to live in separate cages.

Please use this Find an Avian Vet link to find an avian vet for your bird, most avian vets take payments.
