    My cousin brought me a hurt dove. I think its wing is broke. It had a small open cut that I put blue kote on. I supplied it with food and water. I put it in the rabbit cage with a box with wood shavings. Do I need to do anything else?

    Keep it in a very quiet secluded warm area with food and water and leave it in peace for a few days. Death from shock is as likely as injury so give it a chance to recover in a safe haven.

    I would take it to a vet, to check for any internal bleeding or anything else they can do to the wing. If you have the money of course.
