The best thing to do now is to keep it chicken inside not outdoors of possible and look around the coop to see if there's anything that could of caused this I had experienced this with my duck his berk got trapped in the wire of its coop and chipped the best thing to do now is to wait it out or call a vet ASAP and monitor him to see if it the bleeding is completely stopped give him lots of water to clear out any blood in mouth and don't give him any hard food that requires him to peck good luck xx

The shivering may be some shock. Maybe add electrolytes to his water. His beak will grow back and the advice about the softened food is a good idea.
I'm glad the bleeding has stopped, the clacking may be that the beak feels funny.

He will be fine, have you ever heard of beak clipping/cutting it is far worse then his and it is practices on a commercial scale (that does not prove anything) but still don't worry :thumbsup
