OKay so i was thinking that for the people who are new to quail/poultry/ gamebirds etc. we should get a topic started on what should be kept in a birdie first aid kit to have on hand in emergencies and beyond...All thoughts greatly appreciated! i know that in a pinch ,if you have a bleeding wound that needs to be stopped that you can use cornstarch or all-purpose flour. That you use neosporin WITHOUT the pain reliever in it ...and it says on the label which it is. that if a bird breaks a blood feather it it wont stop bleeding ...pull it with a quick clean tug . what else is good to use for birds? i've always had assorted house birds and never had any real problems...except for a budgie that sliced open her leg...that's where the flour/cornstarch info comes in .While she was literally bleeding to death, most of the vets i called said "bring her in ,we cannot prescribe on the phone" ! Since she'd have bled out before i could have gotten her anywhere for treatment that was of no help. Finally a vet did tell me what to do. It worked. and she made it to the vet for proper care.
