    Can someone give suggestions on how to care for this wound? I separated her when I first noticed it (it was much smaller then). Today her beak was bloody so I know she has been pecking at it and it looks much worse.[​IMG]

    I would definitely wash it out fist to see the extent of the injury. Whenever I treat injuries like this, I spray on a purple disinfectant spray. I will have to get the label for you but it helps prevent picking and infection.

    And any feathers in that area, pluck them out.
