Hey, last night my young cockatiel tried to fly down from the window (she/he does not know how to fly yet). When I picked her up from the floor, she was bleeding from under her tail. We stopped the bleeding with flour. She is acting completely normal but do you guys have any idea what caused this? I cannot get her to the vet until Monday Unknown sex but we refer to her as she. About 6 months old

Needs to see emergency vet, whether you stanched the blood or not.

Do you know what it might be? I am so worried. I live in a very rural area over an hour from town and the vet is closed until Monday

Looks like a prolapse, so a vet is needed right away because it can get infected or damage other organs. The area needs to be kept clean and moist until a vet can look at it and determine the best course of action. The vet might use stitches and prescribe antibiotics.

Broken blood feathers is great news & something I thought of last night & was far better than any of the other things it could have been such as broken bones or internal injuries.

Normal poop without blood was also a very good sign.

Glad its nothing serious & she was taken care of by a vet so we can have a sign of relief.
