Hello all, we have a wyandotte hybrid rooster who broke off the tip of his beak a month or so ago. It was fine and grew out okay, but a week or so ago he broke a toenail and we had a time getting the bleeding stopped. Just now, I noticed he has cracked his beak badly into the quick. After he roosts we will catch him and try to trim as needed and stop the bleeding - a friend suggested flour or cornstarch to help bleeding stop. Any suggestions as to why he keeps breaking his hard bits and what to do to help? He's not really an aggresive bird, so I don't think they are fighting injuries. His brother is the more submissive of the two and doesn't challenge him. Please help, he is my daughter's favorite!
