    My hen got her beak stuck in the hardware cloth, and it looks broken on top, the bridge where the air holes are. What do I do?

    Thank you everyone! I posted on the emergency thread. My poor girl :( it doesn't seem to be bothering her and she's eating and drinking.

    I know some surgeons use something like "super glue," at times. I wonder if your vet could use that on her to keep it from enlarging.
