Here is a good link to read about splinting broken bones(Look at pages 10-13), and it tells you whether or not certain injuries can heal without surgery:  https://theiwrc.org/wp-content/uploads/2011/05/Duerr_Splinting_Manual_2010.pdf

and another with good photos of wrapping a wing:  http://www.starlingtalk.com/fractures.htm
