    That is sad! Sounds like you have done all you can. Until you see what the vet has to say, I would also just keep her warm, quite and keep her in darkness so she can rest and not become stressed.

    I don't know much about birds...just wondering what you used to disinfect the cut with...was it a human antiseptic?

    Is she still bleeding? Is she eating? Drinking? When is the vet appointment? Do you have an incubator? A 10 gallon aquarium with a heating pad works nicely to keep them somewhat still. Most tiels if they are feeling very bad will get low in their cage like they are hiding. If he/she is comfortable with you then he/she may just "look" miserable.

    Please keep us update on any progress!!

    Yes, try to keep her in a dark, quiet spot with a mild heating source and water and food in easy reach. If the wound is bleeding, you can use baking flour and corn starch to help staunch the flow. Also when you are transporting her to the vet try to provide some sort of heat in the carrier...you can stuff a sock full of rice, tie it and stick it in the microwave for about 15 seconds (don't let it get too hot though). Or a regular hot water bottle, but with a towel so she doesn't burn herself.

    Let us know how what the vet says, it's probably just a superficial cut but you can never be too careful, especially with a bird.
