    I clipped my young ones wings today and evidently got to close and one has a little bleeding. What should i do for it, if anything. They were flying up in the trees and roosting the last couple of nights and one came up missing today, so i had to clip them.....[​IMG]

    You can use cornstarch, styptic powder... or pull out the feather. It will grow back, but it can be hard to stop the bleeding.
