How to Mend a Birds Broken Wing?

Answer

To mend a broken bird's wing, start by immobilising the broken wing with gauze tape. Wrap this tape around the bird, keeping the wing against the bird's body while going over the broken wing to keep it from moving and allow it to heal. Then you can put the bird into a cage and feed it as it recuperates while changing the gauze once a week.
