As some may recall, I posted about my 9 week old SF that had a beak issue. Well, I could not stand to see her trying to eat and not getting as much as the others and as I am not breeding, I wanted to try to save her if possible rather than cull her. So, I grabbed the handy dremel tool, Faith, a towel and treats and went to the diningroom table. I gave her treats and played with her so that she was full, calm and content. I swaddle wrapped her with a towel and turned the dremel tool on to see her reaction to the sound. She was wonderful, never startled over the sound at all. I did a quick trim on the lower beak and barely tipped the top one. She did push forward as I was rounding the corner of the lower beak and we got a tiny nick of the quick. It bled very little and for a few minutes. After the trim, she ate like a pig and drank a full coffee cup full of water. She then promptly passed out! LOL. This past week she has been great. I pull her out in the morning and give her a deep dish of somewhat ground crumbles and do the same in the evening. She also gets liquid baby vitamins. During the day she is eating with her buddies, foraging in the tractor and really doing well. I thought I would post pics for you of the trim job. Before the trim...her upper and lower beaks met perfectly straight causing a gap in the sides: day after trim...she still did not realize her beak would fully close. That took her about 4 days to realize. One week post trim...beak is almost perfect and she is full! Thanks to everyone who gave me suggestions, tips and advice. I think she is gonna make it just fine. However, if she starts showing she cannot go it alone (once I stop her two a day separate feedings), I will consider culling her. I will not allow her to suffer. But for now she is doing good and a little pampering is good for her as well as me.
