Briana you have to pack the nail with cayenne pepper. Can you try to apply pressure for a few minutes? You can also try flour or cornstarch.

Have him stand in flour. I've done that before as well.

I had that problem with Emma. Put on cayenne for it's good properties, then pack on the flour with pressure. It basically made a flour cast on her toe and stopped the bleeding.

Just keep an eye on him. Unless it's obviously bothering him, rearranging his cage isn't necessary. Good luck!

Cayenne pepper is a good thing to use it has good properties for stopping the bleeding and keeping it sterile.
I also put it on my birds warm food and they love it. Keeps their blood picture good and blood pressure down.
How is Coby now? Better I hope.:hug8:
