You did the right thing NEW
by: Margaret Mariam

Birds who receive care in the first 24 hrs have a much better chance of recovery. After a few days the bones set on their own, if not properly attended to. And the damage if often fatal.

You did the right thing to bring the bird to get medical attention.

If the bird is only in shock, it often will recover in a few minutes, with only a little help from you.
But broken wings or injured legs need professional care.
