Baby chick with a wounded beak

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hello y'all I have a baby chick with a wounded beak, it kinda right on the top of the beak . My husband saw when it happened he said the other chicks started attacking the wounded one when they saw the blood. Any advice? The wounded chick was bleeding pretty good so he took it out and cleaned it, any ideas on how to stop the bleeding? Anything would be helpful. Thanks for your help in advance 😀

Put some table salt and baking soda and flower all together and cake it on the wound it works every time for me. It should heal and correct its self as I had a baby chick that had got its beak cracked and bleeding and i stopped the bleeding with said mixture and let him be with the other chicks and the crack healed over since he was still growing it had closed and he was perfectly healthy o and if u have food coloring try taking a little dab of blue coloring or green just don't use purple red or pink as those colors may attract the others to peck at it and just take a little dab of one of those colors on a cutip and wipe it over the crack or what ever the thing is and it should heal on its own

Do not put salt on a wound!  It will damage the tissue.
