    Can anyone tell me if it's safe to eat the eggs of a hen that was given blood stop power? I am not sure what it means when the precautions say not to give to food producing animals? Thanks

    I'm a little confused here. Do you mean you fed Blood stop powder to a hen, or just used it externally. If it says not to use on food producing animals, eggs are food I would ask a vet about it. If you just used a little to stop a toe nail(for instance) from bleeding, I don't think that would cause any harm.

    Shouldn't be a problem, you'd have to find out what the ingredients are in the blood stop then decide, but I doubt it's anything toxic that could make it into the eggs when used topically.
    Next time just use corn starch, works better anyway IMO.

    Thanks for that tidbit of info aart. Luckily I've not had occasion to have to stop mine from bleeding, but knowing that corn starch will work is great to know. Thanks again.
