    Can you give more info? Where is it bleeding from? How much did you help it? Did you totally open the egg and pull it out? If it's a small bleed, you can try putting cornstarch on it.

    And you're sure it's not part of the yolk? Can you post a picture? Whatever you do, make sure to keep it away from any others who may have hatched so they don't pick at her. If it's bleeding profusely. I would apply some gauze and pressure until it stops. If it's on the tip of wing, you can dip it in some corn starch and see if that stops it.
