    Put a dab of flour on the spot of it is still bleeding. It will need time to rest after it stops bleeding. Give a little sugar water and offer scrambled egg when it seems more coordinated.

    turns out the blood was just from the membranes in the egg and it did not harm him in anyway, he drying off at the moment.
