So I read up on this and am greatly discouraged. I sat down with him in my lap and applied a bit of glue and when i tried to hold the beak down to adhere it broke off completely and disappeared. From what I am reading the beak is like our fingernails and grows back but then I read somewhere else that when the beak breaks it does not grow back. That it is like a tooth being knocked out. He has the pink underlayment intact but it is not covered. I am seriously thinking of visiting a vet with Tom in tow. Am I over reacting?
I would go to the vet personally, but I don't have any experience with beak trouble. He isn't bleeding is he? I have not noticed blood, at least any fresh blood. I will get a better look in the morning. The tissue underneath looks pink and healthy.
It's okay, I've tried to sell two of the hens on Craigslist, a person immediately contacted me wanting them, after I replied they said sorry they didn't know they were bantams and they didn't want them anymore. Even though the ad said bantams on it.
It wasn't you was it?
Are they still for sale? No, it wasn't me.
