    Ok I'm on the bathroom floor with a chicken. I'm covered in poop blood flour and sugar. I was trimming her hooked beak and it started to bleed. It stops bleeding but opens up again when she drinks or cleans herself. Can we try keik stop? Ingredients. Ferric subsulfate Aluminum chloride. Diatomite. Bentonite. Copper sulfate ammonium chloride benzocaine.

    If you have corn starch it will work like the kwik stop and definitely safe if consumed.

    Corn starch or flour should help to stop the bleeding. She may need help eating or drinking for a week or two if the break is really bad.
