    My new quail is bleeding! I am not sure where from yet. I have gotten cotton pads, paper towels, water and hydrogen peroxide ready. I also have toenail clippers because I suspect that her overly long toenails might be the issue. Can anyone thing off anything else I might need? I have no iodine or disinfectant spray. It is on my shopping list :(

    She tore off a toenail.I had thought she cut her chest but it was just a toenail.

    Bleeding has stopped. I trimmed her other nails as best I could with how long the quick on them are. I covered her shavings with papertowels for the next little while to discourage her from scratching. It seems to be working.
