    The black part on her beak in the second pic is the place that the beak broke off.

    Very hard to see exactly what is wrong with her beak. Have you tried mushy pellets? Pecking might be painful. Until someone who can be more helpful posts: scrambled eggs, yogurt, ACV, mushy food... as long as she keeps eating and drinking she will be OK. I don't think it will grow back... but I will admit to having no clue.
