Exclamation Broken Blood Feather! HELP!

Please help! As you know last night people were setting off fireworks for New Years. And my cockatiel must have had a night fright, and she broken one or two blood feathers I don't know what to do! She is acting normal exept for her tiredness. It seemed to stop bleeding. But no vets are opened because it's New Years. I have never pulled out a blood feather and I don't want to but if I have to I will. Can I wait to take her to a vet tomarrow or do I have to pull it? If so how?

If it's stopped bleeding it doesn't need to be pulled out, it will fall out on it's own.

No need. She will be fine. She may even pull the feather out herself. You should only be worried if you can't stop the bleeding.

Default broken blood feather

Broken blood feathers are so scary! Not a fun start to your new year! My lutino hen broke one once and her whole side looked bloody! Like you, I kept checking on her. But it did stop on its own and she was fine. Hope your bird is totally recovered now.
