    Just clipped the overhanging bottom beak of one of my Colorado Ranger hens. Bleeding much more than normal. The chicken is still eating as usual though. What do I do if it doesn't stop soon? I'm sure you've had this loads of times, just don't know what's best to put on it/do with it. Thanks!

    There is a powder quick clot version for animals. You can get it at Petco and Petsmart. It comes in a squeeze tube and you put a puff onto a wound and it stops the bleeding. Maybe this would work.

    You don't have time to get quick clot. Use flour!

    I'd say cornstarch if you have it. If not. flour.
    good luck

    Thank you all! I used cornflour. It takes ages to clot but it seems to be working.
