    Ive got an adult female Runner was attacked by a dog , Shes drinking but shes not gonna be able to eat , Has anyone sucessfully repaired such a bad injury . I always see pictures about it but now that i need it, I cant find them anywhere . I want to save her if possible but I dont want her to suffer . Shes up and around fine goes to the pool and drinks , So are spirits are high , I know people have repaired them as long as the navel cavity stays unblocked. [​IMG]

    Poor thing [​IMG] I've heard of beaks being repaired with epoxy but I don't know of anyone that has ever done it. Maybe you could find a video?
