Thank you for getting back to me. What a terrible accident! Bruce can survive, but you will need the help of a good avian vet. . A local vet who treats mostly dogs and cats isn't likely to be able to help. They will most likely recommend euthanasia. Here is a directory of bird vets:http://www.avianweb.com/recommendedvets.htm
An experienced avian surgeon may be able to create a an artificial beak. It's also possible the broken off beak can be sued as part of this process, so take it along. In addition, Bruce will probably need some antibiotics to prevent infection in the wound. A vet may be able to repair any tissue that was damaged when the beak was pulled off. You are on the right track with syringe-feeding but often a bird with an injured beak often needs to be tube-fed, at least for awhile. The vet can show you how.Then, soft foods are necessary, sometimes for life.
You may want to read the information on the following site. You'll need to scroll down to the section on loss of a beak.http://www.avianweb.com/brokenbeaks.html
This is a serious injury, so it's important to keep Bruce warm enough until you can see the vet. You don't want him to go into shock. You can use a clean sock, and fill it 2/3 with plain, raw white rice. Tie the open end and microwave it for about 1 1/2 minutes. Then shake to distribute the heat. Make sure it's not so hot that it could burn your bird. Put it in the cage for added warmth. You can re-warm it when it gets cool. another option is to set a heating pad on low over the top of the cage. Be sure to check it often. You want the temperature to be about 95*F.
You should also use some preservative-free saline solution (the kind made for contact lenses) to keep the injured area moist. Put a couple of drops on regularly until you can see the vet. It's most important that you try to see an avian vet quickly. The longer you wait, the less likely it is that your bird can be helped.
