I would not put him back in there with a wound like that. They are likely to gang up and badly beck a bleeding bird. Do you have any blue kote at the very least? Or anywhere you can put him. Dog crate, cardboard box, bathtub lol whatever. I would put some non-pain relief neosporin on it. (don't use the pain kind).

x2. Keep him seperated.
If he's bleeding badly, a temporary fix would be to put flour on the wound to stop the bleeding. Then purchase styptic sticks at Walmart to stop the bleeding. Once scabs form, then apply the Blu-Kote.

Thank you! i will definatly use the neosporin, and flour. i was not sure what i could put oh him. i have some totes to put him in also. he is bleeding from the tips of his comb and the worse is under the blade like part of the comb (single, though you may already know that) and back of his head.
