    One of my hens quicked her nail somehow. I used some of my dogs quickstop to stop the bleeding. The bleeding stopped but she managed to eat some of the quickstop in my hand as I was putting it on her toe. Will she be okay?

    If she just pecked at it and got one or two "bites," I imagine she'll be okay.

    You could separate her (if she's not already) and monitor her. Not sure about a way to flush her system or anything.

    Did you dab some antibiotic ointment on her toe to prevent infection? :)
