I have been reading on this forum the best thing to do is keep it clean and leave the skin alone and treat for infection. Any more ideas? My Quail lost eye and after four days the dead eye is still attached to the side of his head. He lost it to another bird's violent peck. It was a horrific scene. The injured Quail is back eating, preening and cuddling his mate. I have them in a separate environment and his female cuddle buddy looks like she is taking care of him. He does not appear to be in distress. I clean his injury four times a day and I have an eye antibiotic cream from the vet. I just want that dead eye off his face. It appears to be still attached but the eye is a hard circle and dead. His mate and him look so loving together and she has been helping him preen around his eye. If he was miserable I would of course consider euthanasia but he is eating, drinking, cuddling and preening with his partner at his side. He lets me treat his injuries. If that dead crusty eye would just fall off it would be great. I don't want to make a mistake and hurt him or make him bleed. Any suggestions please?
