I am terribly sorry to hear about your bird. The first aid procedures Dr. Roy the other expert detailed are complete, thorough and very appropriate as his his recommendation to consult a veterinarian who is familiar with birds . The list of veterinarians on the ASV website he mentioned is your best source to locate a local veterinarian who is familiar working with birds. If your bird's wing is broken when it will at a minimum need a splint for its wing with pain medicines as well as wound care and antibiotics if the broken bone has pierced the skin or what we call an open fracture.I hope both Dr. Roy and I have answered your questions. Should you have any further questions or concerns please let us know. I wish you and your bird all the best.Dr. Adamski
