    My hen chipped her beak and I was wondering if it would grow back ok. Or if it even will grow back... Is there anyway to help her through it I'm not sure I'm newer to chickens.

    I don't believe it will, since commercial birds don't grow there's back. Hopefully someone will tell you how best to trim it so at least it isn't so sharp like that.

    It will grow back.You can trim the pointy parts sticking out with nail clippers.

    When you cut the beak farther back like in commercial flocks the beak wont develop but when its just a nick it will grow back with ease.

    I just wanted to know because I was going to cut it and make it less sharp but I really wanted to show her so I was hoping it would grow back.
