    I removed my roo's spur nail last night, leaving the quick. There was very minimal bleeding last night. It looked okay this morning, but when he went out to forage, the quick began to bleed. I've applied corn starch repeatedly, but at times, it resumes bleeding. I'be had him seperated all day and it is now almost 9pm. He will remain seperated, but now the quick looks damaged and is still bleeding, even with packing corn starch on it.

    Anything else I can do? Is it normal for it to bleed so much?

    Keep trying to pack some cornstarch on it. He may be moving around too much. Is he confined in a kennel?

    Thanks! I alost bought some too! Just wasn't sure of I coupd use it on him. I think I'll buy some to keep on hand. I kept applying corn starch and kept him in a large dog crate for 2 days, and now he's fine. Just put him back in the coop this morning, just to find an egg bound hen. Ughhh....

    I'm glad he is good!

    Oh my, I hope your hen is able to pass her egg. If you need any help let us know.
