Chicken has broken beak

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

Need some help and information, I have noticed that I have two young chickens that are missing a portion of their upper beak, they seem to be eating and drinking, but is there something I can do to help them, and will they be okay in this condition over a period of time. Certainly do not want them to suffer in any way. Advice is needed.

Frequently pullet chicks destined for egg production farms have a portion of their upper beak removed.  It is unsightly but they do fine.  Not certain what happened to your birds, but they should be okay.

Agreed ^ 

 

Depending on where you acquired them from, they could have been "de-beaked". Farms do that to prevent the chickens pecking and killing each other.
