Baby crow (strong & healthy) with wing broken part way along

16/12/2016 -

I saw a baby crow with broken wing on the river bank about 10days/2 weeks ago. I

went back to get it but it was not there. Today 10 days later it was there & it is is

really strong & healthy but can't fly. After surviving foxes for all that

time I think it deserves to live. I have it in a cage on our property. It can flap its wings but the left wing is

hanging part way down. I will try & get the local Vet (Macleay Valley Vets

- Kempsey) to fix it's wing so it can be released. I heard you recently

repaired a bird with a broken wing using a toothpick & glue. Do you have

any details if I can get the Vet to try & fix it. (or yourselves - great

diving up here at fish rock Chris!) I will pay & bring bird to you - the

tough little bird definitely deserves to live now!

Hi Peter

Your local vet is definitely the right place to start. They should be able to treat the baby crow. Another option is a service such as the RSPCA.

All the best.
