    You can apply some cornstarch or flour to the wound to help stop the bleeding. Apply pressure with a cool cloth.

    You will need to keep him separated from the other one. Once the bleeding has has stop, take time to check him over for any other wounds.
     
  4. Thank you so much!!! Looks like I won't be sleeping much tonight.
     
  5. He won't let me get near him!

    Where is he?

    You will need to be calm so he is, you don't want to panic him more.
     
  7. I calmed him down. He was hiding under the roost. Apply Cornstarch now.

    Separate him to a calm quiet area - semi-dark if you can. Let him calm down once you have the bleeding stopped. Check him over for any other wounds or injuries. If he has any, wash them off or flush them with saline and apply some triple antibiotic ointment or vetericyn. Leave water for him. Just keep an eye on him.

    When you have time, photos might help.

    After you this this one settled, go check on the other rooster to see if he has any wounds that need to be treated. Keep them separated. Preferable where they cannot see each other.

    Keep us posted.
     
  9. Would Vetrecin work?
     
  10. Other roo is fine accept for some scratches.
