    She has been bleeding for a couple days and then it stopped and tonight the blood is back running down her neck. Is there anything i can put on it to make it stop bleeding? Thx Tony

    I've not encountered this but I have read that some people use cornstarch, if putting pressure on it doesn't do the trick.
    I know it's not exact advice - but it's something for you to look into while waiting for experienced help.

    Hope you find an answer soon.

    I came home to the same thing today [​IMG]. I isolated her so the other girls won't attack. I'll check on her in the morning and use the cornstarch if I need to. It looks horrible because she's a bantam leghorn and all white. Thanks for the advice! Gotta love BYC![​IMG]
