How do you help a bird with a broken wing?
A broken wing can be immobilised by taping the wing in its natural folded position (not too tightly so as to restrict breathing). Micropore tape or vet rap tape doesn’t stick to the feathers. If the bird has obvious injuries such as a broken wing, missing foot or broken leg, then seek veterinary advice.
How do you humanely kill an injured bird?
How do you euthanize a bird humanely? The most humane way. Probably the most humane way to kill any injured bird is to knock it on the head with a purpose-made priest. So, if you want your vet to use gas anesthesia to euthanize your rats, ask your vet to order a bottle of isoflurane (about $45) to have on hand. Take a sharp ax or hatchet—sharp!

Can injured birds survive?

How do most birds die?
