Cracked beak! What else can I do for her?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

My girl cracked her beak this morning; not sure how, but it was relatively minor.  No blood, just on the tip of the beak, the beak is still very much attached.  Per research I put a dab of superglue on there to stabilize it until it healed up, however, she'd still very clearly in pain and unwilling to eat or forage.  She'll drink, no problem, but when it comes to even eating grass, she gently pecks, and then backs off.  Is there anything I can do for her, to make sure she'll eat or lessen the pain?

I don't think there's really much you can do other than time.
