This is her:



She's a little cutie! Anyway, two questions: Has this been caused before I got her or after? Because wouldn't her beak be bleeding? Second questions is whether she'll be able to eat?

I have a bob exactly like that. She had the top of her beak henpecked off as a chick, but over a year and a half and she is doing just fine.
