    Our Black Star hen is bleeding from her back toenail , it looks like it is gone. The only thing I can think is she hurt it in the nesting box scratching around b/c before she went in there she was fine. What do we do???

    Quote:Hopefully the bleeding has stopped by now. If not you can use flour, cornstarch, or stypic powder to stop the bleeding. You could apply a little anti-biotic cream without any caine pain reliever, like lidocaine. Can you isolate her to keep her from getting it dirty/infected?

    Good luck
