    My lovely turken Henrietta had a piece of fencing fall on her today. I suspect her wing may be broken. She is in a large box with hay, food and water in the house for tonight. Suggestions for what to do next?

    Sorry to hear about your girl. I haven't repaired any broken wings, but did splint a couple of broken legs. They heal quite fast and are pretty durable birds. I'm sure you could wrap her wing and bind it to her, I'm just not informed enough on the proper procedure for you to get it right. hopefully, someone will fill you in on the proper method, or, try a Google search. These guys don't need to fly, so, anything you can do for her will work out fine.
