    Hi, i have an injured hen here. She has a cut on her head and shes bleeding from it. I dont know what happened since i just found her like that, do you know what i can do to stop the bleeding. Oh and she has also had a problem walking, she kinda hops/jumps to walk and when she stands still her toes bend over in an awkward way. She has been like thay since birth. Thanks!

    To stop bleeding you can use cornstarch or flour.
    Styptic powder is also available at most pharmacies.
