Debeaked Isa Browns. Not happy

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hi all, I'm Gaz. The story. Have acquired 10 Isa hens that have had their upper beak badly debeaked/trimmed. Their lower beaks are protruding so much that the girls can't forage properly. Is there a way to shorten their lower beak so that they can do what hens like to do ?
