Broken leg

Just to add to what Tracie said, this is an emergency situation, and you have to get her into an Avian Vet like yesterday. Once the leg starts setting in its broken state, the vet will have to re-break the bone to set, splint and cast it. So message is, DO NOT DELAY GETTING HER TREATMENT IMMEDIATELY IF NOT SOONER.

How a break is treated at the beginning will put in place how this bird's future will look. One of chronic pain or one where leg heals nicely. It is up to you to get bird medical help right away to avoid more suffering.

You need to take your bird to an avian vet ASAP for it to be splinted and get pain medication. If you do not have an avian vet, you can look for one on our Find an Avian Vet page. Besides the suggestions from our readers, there are links at the top of the page that take you to avian vet sites where you can do a search.
