Injured beak?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
I just checked on my 12 week old chickens and I noticed Pepper has part of her beak sticking out to the side and I don't want to mess with it but I'm wondering if it'll come off itself. I tried getting a good picture but she doesnt like the camera it looks like

I just noticed another one has it as well but smaller, is it just them trying to wear down their beaks and it chipped off?

Is it either the top or bottom beak sideways? Or does it appear to be a part of almost peeling off?

It's like the side of the top beak it looks like she tried to trim it but didn't do a good job

Maybe you could give it a day to see if she can work it off herself or try peeling it off with your hands but you can also trim it with nail clippers if it's bothering her

It came off on its own smile.png it looked like it was in her way of pecking so I'm glad she got it off herself

I wonder if maybe she brushed up against something sharp that made part of the beak peel off?
