    My boy got injured today, A feather got broke of near the bottom of the quill. I bled a bit.
    Does something need to be done?
    He's booted, and yes he's missing toes!

    Those are called blood feathers. I don't have any personal experience with them myself but a google search "broken blood feather" should give you some info. Good luck. Hope your roo feels better soon.
