    What can I use to stop the bleeding on a chicken beak? I live really far out of town.

    Try putting flour on it.

    Thanks, I'll go try that. I tried putting some dehydrated lime, then some powdered dirt. It was still bleeding when I came to the house.
    I did put her in a pen by herself/no feed or water. Thanks!

    When my hen had a torn comb I put neosporin (not the one with pain reliever) and then put flour. I don't know if it works the same on a beak though. Good luck.

    Your welcome. Keep putting the flour on until it stops. Your doing the right thing by keeping her quiet..
