Zebra-Finch (Not an emergency)
I came home one day and my zebra finch's leg was twisted. she had a little pink thing (they put it on the birds at pet store. diff colors, but mine was pink), Its was around her left leg. It was bleeding..and two days later I decided to take it off carefully because I saw that shes was in pain, and I removed her from the cage because there were more birds and I read on the Internet that they tend to pick on weaker cage-mates. Then I put her in a cage alone.
So then I decided to rap something around to try and make it straight. I JUST put it on..I'm going to leave it there so her little leg gets used to having it how its suppose to be. Hopefully after a couple of days,when i take it off..it will be straight and she'll try to move her fingers (or toes I don't know) and her leg will be back to normal. I'm also going to give her maybe if I find something for bones, or well something that might help her leg, I will give it to her, make sure its approved and yea.
So, I want to know if this will be OK, because I asked about taking her to a vet and it costs 105$ JUST for them to check whats wrong. PLUS what they have to do. Its too much money. Hopefully you can help. Also another question, its that shes been acting a little weird today. She opens her tail feathers like a peacock and stays there. And before that I saw her !plop! and then now she's acting a little weird. Please answer my two questions as soon as possible. Its not an emergency, just I want to know soon, to make sure I'm doing the right thing.
