My broody Black Australorp Sweetie went outside the other day and when I went out to check for eggs, she had blood all over her face and her beak was broken half off just below the nose. I've isolated her and have put water and mashed up food in the cage, but she won't touch it. She won't even drink water. I broke an egg and gave it to her, and she took 2 bites, but she can't eat it very well because the inside of her mouth is all swollen. She keeps flicking her tongue out and clicking her beak. My mom and I cleaned her beak with soapy water the night it happened, and we are planning to get some betadine. She just sits in the nest she made and sleeps and does nothing. (She's been broody before. It's pretty irritating sometimes, except now. I could let her be broody all the time if she wanted to now. ) I've read elsewhere that sometimes the beak will grow back, either all the way, partially, or deformed. I would post pix, but our camera doesn't work very good and I don't know how to post pix here. Does anyone think it might grow back?
