Post: Broken wing (humor bone)

    My 4 month old budge managed to break her wing when she got
    stuck on my CD storage stack. Actually, I think it broke
    when she panicked trying to unstick herself.

    So I took her to the vet who kept her over night trying to
    best find a taping that he would tolerate. He would not
    accept the traditional taping of the wing to the body. So he
    simply taped the wing shut. I have had to place him in a
    very small cage with 2 perchs at ground level. He is
    miserable because he is away from his mate who is in a
    cockatiel cage alone waiting for his return. They are both
    crying and screaming for each other periodicaly throughout
    the day. And they are both angry at me for seperating them.
    I feel horible.

    It has been 3 days like this and I will have to wait 6 weeks
    to see if this will work, but I don't know if I can keep
    them seperated that long. It is not as if I can explain to
    them that they need to have patience.

    Anyone have any advise? Will the wing/humor bone repair?
    Opinions welcome
