I thought about putting him in a plastic container cutting some holes maybe the flies cannot get him. He stands and can walk some. I think he maybe in shock he is breathing with his beak open. Any advice would help

 




Read my thread, it really helped my little girl:

I had one that had her backside off, she was so close to dying we were going to get her euthanized (we don't caul)

*I washed her wounds from beginning, with warm water.
*Peroxide only 2x's the 1st 2 days ONLY
*Vetericyn from beginning to healed (buy the big bottle)
*Neosporin from beginning to healed
*Duramycin that I have in a powder form water. since day one for 12-14 days.
*spray her with vetericyn and finishing with neosporin.
*Feed high protein food, tuna fish and scrambled eggs.

I will remember those things if it happens again. Sadly he didn't make it I guess his wounds was internal also. He started panting for breath heavily so I thought if I gave him space he would calm then I checked on him not even 5 minutes later and he was gone. I guess it was meant for him to survive that attack and make it back home so I got to bury him.
