Baby mocking bird... Need help!!!!

7 years ago

My cat brought me a baby mocking bird. (Unharmed) I guess it knew it needed help. Anyway, it is eating very well and getting stronger by the day, but my main concern is that it looks like it's one leg has been broken at the elbow (if that's what you call it) it can move the toes a little bit but can't use them, and the one longer toe it keeps attacking like crazy with its beak, I don't know if the nerves are damaged and causing it pain. I guess my main question is , will this bird survive once it can fly? Or should I plan on keeping this bird in a large cage outside for its protection?? Does the leg need to be fixed? Or will it heal on its own?!?!

any help would greatly be appreciated!
