overly hooked beak?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hi. I picked up a frizzle Cornish bantam this weekend as a tag along with another purchase. She appears a bit thin to me (possibly just not used to the frizzle look) and also seems to have an overly hooked beak. What do you guys think?

It appears that her upper beak has grown too long and needs to be trimmed. This is easy to do with human nail clippers. Have someone else hold her firmly. Then, carefully clip off only the overgrown portion. You want the upper part of the beak to be just a little longer than the lower portion. Clip small pieces off until you have the correct length.
