    I posted a month or two ago about one of my pullets having a broken beak. That one was pretty minor and grew back just fine. Now, my other one broke her beak. I think it got stuck on the cage that I had stuck some treats into. It's bled some, but it's pretty much stopped. I have used the Vetericyn VF spray to clean it as much as she will allow. I put Neosporin on it as well to prevent infection. Should I be doing anything else? [​IMG][​IMG][/IMG][/IMG]

    Looks like you've covered all the bases. I can't see the break, but some beak cracks that do NOT involve bleeding can be repaired with superglue gel and a tea bag patch.

    Thanks. It's bled some. In fact, I've put flour on it twice tonight to stop it. She seems to be eating hard boiled eggs tonight.

    It's not a beak related problem but any suggestions help. He's been like this for about a month now. He eats and drinks normal. The yellow thing smells bad and is hard. It's coming out of his mouth and nostrils too. We've already tried Tylan 50 and eye ointment. Tried to take the yellow part out too but couldn't.

    That looks pretty bad, I can't tell what's going on there but it looks like his whole face is swollen. He needs some professional help from a veterinarian who specializes in birds and poultry. Maybe someone on here knows some better advice. I'd say start a new thread under the forum for medical emergencies, that might call more attention to it so you can get some advice on how to help him out.

    Our vet usually gives eye drops and Tylan 50,both we already used on him. And eye ointment too. That didn't help either.
