    As well as stopping when you see blood, it is a good idea to have toilet paper handy. It stops the bleeding quick when applied to the cracks, minimizing blood loss. I thought about trying a styptic pencil, but i wasn't sure how much would get into the blood supply or potential effects on the chick.
