    No, they were both there, sorry if my explanation was a little confusing, i was kinda panicking there. there was all that blood in the cage and all three of them had these black scabs on their feet. but the photos i took were on the worst one, her toe just was hanging on by a thread (replaced by blackish brown scab ). its all kinda settled down and i brought all three inside in a different small cage which i put a towel over ( for warmth ) and gave them my homemade electrolyte drink ( water, sugar and salt ) and now they're all just standing still, staring off into the distance. i think they may be suffering shock because they've been in the same position for an hour or so, and i don't think me dipping their beak in my electrolyte water helped. need help on how to treat shock, and also, in the morning i'll have to treat their wounds, any idea on that? :s

    Okay.
    1. Where do you live? (not specifically, just state (or country))
    2. Where is their cage? outside or inside?
    3. Do you live nearby the woods or countryside?
    4. How big are the gaps between the bars of the cage?
