    Hello all,

    Just noticed yesterday one of my girls has a broken beak. I did a search and found some pretty awful stories luckily mine doesn't seem to be as bad as those I've been reading. So I'm not sure if I need to do anything or if I should just leave her alone. She seems to be eating and drinking fine and acting normal. The tip is broken and above looks like it was some how shaved off? What should I do?

    Yours looks pretty minor and should regrow just fine. Make sure her feed access is easy for her to encourage eating. Good luck to you!
