: I'll add one thing to my post. A breeder friend of mine who has had many birds over the years agrees -- you spend a lot of time, effort and stress trying to eliminate every possible hazard from their environment and they inevitably get into something else. You didn't do anything wrong, it's just very difficult to be diligent 100% of the time.
It's like having a toddler running around. It's hard to keep them completely safe. My little guy walked into the kitchen the other night. He had been just sleeping. I heard him talk to me when he got closer. If he hadn't made any noise, I wouldn't have known he was there and I might have stepped on him. You can't blame yourself for Rainbows injury. It happens. He knows you love him. He'll get better with lots of love. :)
