Well I thought it was a feather sticking out but I couldn't be so lucky...About 4 inches long was sticking out of him and it is a little over 1/4 inch wide and the thickness is about 1/32 inches. It is located towards the front of him slightly on the right side and even with the top of his wing. Maybe sticking out of where his crop is???? I was afraid to just pull it out because I don't know how deep it is and I didn't know if it would cause it to bleed to death so I took some wire cutters and cut it down so that it would not hit on anything but enough to grab onto until I got some information. He seems OK but I don't know what to do? If I am able to pull it out, what should I do to prevent infection?
