    Hi I can tell he means a lot to you, I don't have much experience but when I worked at a vets years ago we did the same for all birds after an attack, keep them warm with a microwave bean bag in the cage small enough that they can sit by it/ on it but also get off it if too warm and keep them calm, if he wants to stay in the box I'd let him, pipette water just a couple of drops every couple hours if he not drinking and make sure he has food and water close by. They often die from the stress so it's best not to cause any more and just leave him to relax. I'm no expert I'm afraid and hope someone else will comment here, best of luck
