I'm sorry that your question wasn't answered in a timely manner. Therapy would be predicated upon where the break has occurred and the type of break. Have X-rays been taken?
The rapid metabolism of birds can bridge fractures in as little as 3 weeks and so I might simply apply a small padded bandage for my patient's comfort. A brace made from cotton-tip applicators or a tongue depressor might be applied if the fracture site is unstable and stability is important.
