Pearl the cockatiel breaks a blood feather and we attempt to treat it. Broken blood feathers are a fairly common injury for cockatiels. Fortunately in Pearl’s case, the bleeding stopped pretty quickly and we monitored the injury to make sure it stopped bleeding. We had flour on hand to stop the bleeding if necessary and the vet on standby. A few hours later and Pearl showed no ill effects and we decided to let the blood feather grow out on its own.

      I am scared that it will happen to my bird, because I have never had this happen to my bird, so I don’t think I could pull it out! We kind of had a blood feather scare, where I was playing with my cockatiel and I noticed a weird looking feather. It was a pin feather, but if it broke it would become a blood feather. My mom, dad, me and my sister were all examining the bird, and searching what to do but it turns out he’s okay.mits very scary when they get a blood feather 😢

      Happy Pearl is OK. You did the right thing. Once a neighbor brought me her cockatiel that had the same thing.There was so much blood I could not find the base of the feather. I wrapped the bird on a towel and rushed him to the vet. He pulled the feather out and the bird was fine. He said to use a tweezer to pull it out.

      Why don’t you guys put your birds in the same cage?

    • Kira Bowie

      I'm glad Pearl is okay! And you too! My 'tiel Gilbee broke a blood feather when he fell off the ledge in hsi new cage. I was going to leave it, but like pearl it was at an odd angle & was bothering him. I wound up pulling it out & yes, Gilbee was NOT happy about that at all! XD And for a few days he was mad at me, but he got over it & when I took him to the vet for a check up, he said I did the right thing. I have to agree; the whole thing was just as scary & nerve wracking as you described!

      If u have birds, make sure to always have a first aid kit for them. For example my amazon parrots broke some blood feathers in the past and the kit came super handy. U can buy one for super cheap on amazon

    • Ella Webb
