    I'm not sure if I'm in the correct forum, but I'm concerned because when I was at the feed store I overheard someone asking about the chickens beaks growing too much and they may not eat or drink. Should I be concerned about my chickens beaks? I have four Rhode Island Reds that are about 16 weeks old ( all hens ).

    You don't need to worry about their beaks. They naturally wear them down in their normal day-to-day hunting and pecking routines. You may see them filing down against concrete or rocks on occasion as well. They're pretty self-sufficent critters. Enjoy!
