    Hello BYC,

    One of my females cut her toe on the corner of some wire mesh and it has been bleeding for the past few days. I cleaned it with alcohol wipes and bandages. It is starting to heal, but very slow. I checked it awhile ago and it still bleeds with a mixture of blood and water. Does anyone know what medicine or method I need to apply in order for it to heal completely? I also want to prevent any bacteria or disease. I would greatly appreciate it.

    *Btw I noticed on her other leg she has a bubblefeet issue at the tip of her foot. It is small though.


    Thank you,

    Nathan

    If you do not have any type of powder made to help stop bleeding, sprinkle a bunch of regular baking flour over the cut. It will make the bleeding stop and it is safe on chickens.
