    Yesterday I noticed one of my hens having a difficult time eating. I just thought it was strange and let it go. This morning she was having the same problem. I examined her and found that her tongue has grown through her lower beak. Does anyone have any ideas about how this happened and can it be treated. Her tongue is very dry and I don't want her to suffer. We live in the city, so farm animals are difficult to find help with. Any info would be appreciated.
