Poor Isaac! One of my Delaware rooster's women just bit off the end of one of his comb points as he bent down to give her something to eat. It had a small scab on it, which is why she zeroed in on it. We scooped him up, leaving a blood trail up the steps (CSI would have been hot on our trail!). It was a gusher. For almost an hour we tried everything. Blood Stop Powder doesn't stop it. Pressure didn't. Mixture of flour, cornstarch and blood stop powder didn't. Bandaging it with blood stop on the gauze didn't. Styptic pencil didn't. Ice didn't. We were fresh out of super glue, which is usually our last resort. So, out came the blow torch and a piece of thick copper wire. We iced down the tip while putting pressure on the comb, then we touched the hot wire to the bleeder. It worked!!! Incidents like this are why I only want roosters who are calm and don't mind being handled. Isaac is my buddy, comes up the roost for a chest rub every day when I'm raking poop, but he's never been handled like this. He wasn't happy, but he submitted to all we did without much struggling at all. He was very stressed and I was afraid he would have a heart attack in my lap, but I talked to him the whole time and he was just an awesome patient!
