It's so hard being on this side of owning animals. Knowing when you have done everything you can and you're just prolonging the suffering. This part I do not enjoy

I know it looks disgusting but this is a good sign. when blood is not fresh (red) it means it is the last stage of inflammation/infection.

 

good luck!

Thank you! They'll be in the house all week, antibiotics say they need to be on it for 7-14 days, I hate having them cooped up in the dog crate but I can't guarantee they're drinking and eating in the barn

It's for their own good! Better to be cooped up than culled. wink.png

Some people cannot afford a vet, so they try to take care of the birds at home. If you have the means, then take the bird to the vet. If not, do your best at home. It isn't always an option for everyone. smile.png
