    his wing seems to be bleeding...guessing from the weight...
    every time I wrap his wing he manages to get loose...well, now it seems
    his wing is 'bleeding'... Crook is 11 weeks old today ...
    what do I need to do for his wing???
    should I keep it wrapped and will the bleeding stop or has he gotten too old??
    he looks so pityful with his wing hanging but otherwise healthy....

    any advice will be greatly appreciated!! soon please!! [​IMG]

    NO ADVICE???? ANYONE????

    I have wrapped it once again...let's see............

    The only experience i have with this is i was given a girl who was already full grown that had angel wing. Her wing was really distorted. All i did for her was to keep her wing feathers trimmed really short and she lived fine for 3 years till she was taken by a neighbours dog.

    satay and Miss Lydia...thanks for the input....I wrapped then covered his body from neck to bottom with the leg from
    an old pair of hosiery...so far this has stayed on thru the night and today...will try cutting his wing feathers to see if this
    also won't help...
    I will check out that info you sent as well Miss Lydia...

    thanks again
