When our chicken was just a couple weeks old it got attacked by our male duck. The bottom beak is what is broken. Four months later this chicken is still alive and we've become very attached. But I am wondering if anyone else has had this before and what you fed your chicken. She has to peck at say a piece of bread for sometimes 5-15 times before she gets it in her mouth. Although she is not the size of the other chickens, she's still growing a lot each week now that she left her flock during the day and we feed her scraps. She just doesn't seem to be getting the nutrition of say the pellet. She is a free range chicken during the day. Here's a funny picture of her......we somehow find beauty in her! Thanks in advance!
