My darling Audrey Hepburn (tiny EE) has been picked on unmercifully by God only know which one or ones . anyway yesterday It was just a small wound so I flushed it out, poured peroxide on it and sprayed Blue Kote. I went out a little later and her tail was half chewed off, a bone was showing, and a blob of something yellow which I am assuming is chicken fat . I took her right out, read some related messages on BYC, cleaned it, peroxide, neosporin and into a cage in our bedroom. Does anyone think she will lose her tail? She is so sweet and good she didn't even fight when I was administering to her! should I have taken her to the vet? I know it's a moot point now but they had just soaked me $300 for treating a sick parakeet that died the next day anyway. I am so P.O.d at them! All they ever see is dollar signs! anyway, the wound does look better today. guess I'm just looking for some reassurance that she won't lose her tail!
