    My 2 roosters fought today through a fence. I believe the damage is pretty minor. They were both bleeding from cuts in their combs and that was it, it still made quite a mess though. I cleaned both of them off with some warm water and a rag and applied Blu Kote. My silkie rooster has a rose comb and is the worst off. I just checked on him and he is still bleeding a little even though fight happend over 4 hours ago. I need to know what I can use to stop the bleeding. It has to be either homemade or in the pantry, I can't go to the store right now. Please help. [​IMG]

    You can try flour. Hope they stop bleeding.

    Try applying cornstarch, baking soda or flour if that's all you have. Wrap him in a towel and apply gentle pressure to his comb for a couple of minutes. Good luck!

    put some flour on it and then put blue coat over that the flour will help stop the bleeding by coagulating in the wound. if you nuke it for a mintue or two first to get it hot that will make it sterile.

  6. Turmeric powder from your spice cabinet is a natural astringent that is commonly used in many products that stop bleeding.
