I have a sweet pet Kraienkoppe who is almost at POL. When she was 2 weeks old Ripley got attacked by our dog and our cat and survived. I cared for her and she recovered from a lame leg and scratched face. One eye eventually went white, sunk in and she doesn't use it. She is my little pirate chicken She is so sweet, loves to be pet and held, pretends to groom my hair and lowers her head for me to kiss it till she falls asleep. I want to take the best care of her I can. I recently noticed that the top part of her beak is getting really long and hook like. It is starting to force her bottom jaw sideways into a cross beak. She can still eat and drink, but it doesn't look pleasant to me. I feel like I should trim her beak but I don't want to hurt her. I read that its cruel and painful and I don't want to be that. I just want to help - but not if the cure is worse than ailment. The "hook" currently extends way past and under the bottom beak. Any recommendations on how or if I should attempt to trim it? Her beak is a dark "horn" color. Please don't flame me if you think this is a bad idea - I am just asking because I don't know.
