    Do you think he may be feeling better today?What is he eating? Maybe offer him some warm scrambled eggs or mashed potatoes ,sweet or regular.His beak is probably sore and soft foods might be a comfort for him.Can you get hand raising food for him?:hug8:

    Thank you for helping him and bless that rescue!

    His beak is likely from another bird...when I had my fosters, I had several with scarring in a similar pattern. When they fight, they often hook into a nare and drag down. Although his is really bad but maybe it happened early as his beak was developing and it's grown back since the actual injury time.

    I would have purchased him and told that breeder that if we were alone, I'd b...slap his #ss for being an awful human being. Just awful to even think something like that.

    Please keep us posted.

    Sorry everyone I've had a busy couple days. We have named this little guy Mojo and after a few days of warm soft foods and a trip to the vet it's been determined he has an infection which he is getting meds for and they are keeping him until tomorrow just to see how well he eats and drinks and what their other tests say. They have documented all of his injuries which they said must have been done by another bird when he was very young and must've been horribly painful and aboslutely should have been seen by a vet when they occurred. As this is the vet that the OSPCA had asked me to take him to other than the $100 examination I don't have to pay anything. If it comes to light that this bird didn't see a vet when injured the man we got him from will be answering to the authorities. They are also going to visit him to check on the welfare of his other animals as their concern is what may be going on behind closed doors. I had a lengthy discussion with them about how there is still a tendancy of authorities to consider fresh food and water to be adequate care for birds. It's infuriating and quite sad to think of these loving intelligent guys being considered less worthy of protection than say a dog cat or horse but that's something that will take education to combat. For the long term we are going to be keeping an eye on new growth of his beak they trimmed away sharp parts and made sure it was stable. The new growth behind it seems to be coming in somewhat normally and we'll his poor toes they won't be coming back but we've seen him using them almost normally to pick thing up and his clumsiness is probably mostly due to being weak. Thanks for your help and support everyone. I will keep you posted.

    I can tell you from the 5 Quakers I have, partial toes missing does not affect their movement or slow them down from moving around.

    Great outcome at the vet's. If he has just an infection, antibiotics should take care of that. Then he will feel much better.

    The care and loving that this bird will get from you , will be the most important in his recovery. He probably thinks he has gone to heaven.

    I hated it when the "owner" said he'd drown him, it's got to be a slow and sorry death. I don't mean to condone bird killing in any way shape or form, but when my grandmother would buy a chicken at the local dry goods store, the owner broke the chicken's neck.

    Fingers crossed they can put this Bozo out of business or at least straighten him out with a few hefty fines and surrenders.

    Super glad that Mojo will finally have a chance to recover. Like @Hankmacaw said, the little guy probably thinks he's in heaven. :cloud9:

    love the name Mojo, and I can't be happier that he has found good medical treatment and love.
    I'm so glad someone is giving that brute a look, maybe he will get scared out of the "business"
    Will look forward to updates on all of it!

    I didn't read through everything but when I saw the beak, my first thought was a possible nasty sinus infection that caused damage to the bed of the beak... and second, possibly injury as already been stated. I hope he gets to feeling better!
