    I just found one of my girls has a bleeding foot! They have all been out foraging int he woods behind our house and we have no idea how she came to be injured.
    I am so upset!
    I have seperated her from the others which she is pretty p**d off about.
    How long does it take for chickens to stop bleeding? I was hoping to let her mingle with the others again before their 'bedtime'

    Generally anything will stop bleeding within 5 minutes. If you keep wiping the blood away, you remove the clot. Only reason they would continue to bleed would be an artery or a bleeding disorder.
