    I managed to save my alpha from a Cooper Hawk this morning. I thought she was okay when I put them back in their covered run but I went out to give them some food and I noticed she has a cut right above her wing.

    I have her sitting on my lap as I type this out because I think I have to keep them separate right? So the others wont peck at her boo boo? I don't think any veins were cut.

    I lost my alpha to a hawk yesterday! & I'm nursing one that was hurt during the attack.
    If the bleeding has stopped, clean her up & put a topical heal aid on it with out pain relief. I'm using cream polysporn.
    keep her separate, feed & water until she starts healing up & can go back out.

    I hope she does ok.

    Thank you I think I have some ointments to help her. The bleeding seems to have stopped, I'm going to try to feed her in a little bit too.
