    Pictures would be good. My roo has broken his beak twice, once up into the quick and it bled quite a lot. I put ambisol on it for a couple days and fed him a mash for qhile an it harderned up/grew back. Just depends on how far up. Make sure he has soft food so he doesn't get weak. I don't know what else to say unless I see a pic. On Chicken Run Rescue's facebook page, they just took a hen on with an upper beak that was cut/debeaked on purpose. Read up on what they might be doing for her possibly.
