My Americana, Sassafrass, must have gotten tangled up in something and in her panic to get free, somehow managed to break her beak. ( I'm guessing as to how this happened. ) Anyhow, her upper beak is cracked more than halfway across the top, but not all the way through to the pallet. It bled some, but not bad. I rinsed it and pressed on it to see how lose it is. It has some mushy give to it, but otherwise seems like it may heal okay if she stays in and quiet. ( She is. ) She is in good spirits, but a little grumpy about her confinement! I'm off to get some iodine. Now my question is.. should I try securing her beak with a steri strip, or butterfly bandage? I worry that she may bump her beak pecking around and cause an interuption in the healing, or worse...it could get knocked completely off...Yikes!
