Default 10 eggs gone and one wing

I wasn't exactly sure where to post this but am extremely sad as my only breeding pair lost there 10 fertile eggs when Thalia the hen got her wing stucktween the bars and flapped it like crazy severing half of it off. in rush to try and save her eggs she ran back to the nest box but got stuck half way through the hole because she could not close her wing. Rizzo opened the door like he's done before and pecked at my face so I'd wake up If Rizzo hadn't I probably would have been to late I tried to stop the bleeding then swadled her Rizzo fed her and we left for the hospital Thalia in nothing but her swdle in the car. after waiting an hour the avian vet said she may not have her wing IF she made it.She came home today and I have to hand feed her so I can mix in the medicine and she can barrily move because she lost her wing there's a heat source to help Rizzo may be able to feed her. I'm so shattered right now.

Oh how awful. I'm so sorry this happened. Rizzo is a hero for knowing how to get your attention so you could help Thalia. Thank goodness you were there!

I realize this is a very stressful event, but please know that budgies are very adaptable and Thalia can adjust to her one wing. I had a budgie named Skyla who had her wing amputated (from a tumour) and she went on to live happily even without the ability to fly. She quickly learned how to get around and she still managed to hold her own around the boys.

I can't even tell you how much I really feel for you in this situation. Hang in there. You're doing great.

Thanks Rizzos the real hero there together and he's feeding her but she fell from her perch because she's unbalanced and try to stand on one leg to sleep and fell I was in the room but Rizzo started opening the cage to get me but I was already there. Rizzo ran over to her and when I put her back on the perch he pushed on the side with the wing and she put her foot up got her balance and went to bed Rizzo moved away and she stayed then he ate some food climbed back up and went to bed right next to her he's such a sweetheart

Oh my goodness!! I am so sorry This is just terrible... Rizzo is a very special budgie though, and I think Thalia will pull through as long as they are together. I am sending you my best wishes.

Oh wow... poor girl. I'm glad you were there and that she's doing ok. She'll learn to adapt with one wing tho breeding will no longer be possible her and her mate can live a happy life together. Make sure she has lots of ramps to climb up (branches work well) she will fall a lot at first but she'll figure it out. It's like us learning to live with one leg. It takes time but with love she'll be ok.

Make her a nice platform in her cage close to her faveorite perching spot. It will give her an easier place to sleep with less chance of falling.

Karma for you for all you're doing for your birdies.

What a shocking story!! I am so sorry about your poor bird how awful for her. I hope she recovers quickly and I agree with the previous posters - given time and patience she can adapt to her handicap and can still have a fulfilling life with only one wing. So very sorry
