I moved my BS chicks into a larger pen last Sat., only to arrive home from work to hear painful cheeps from them. As I checked on them, I noticed a guinea keet (they were hatched and raised together) peck at one peachicks bloody beak. He is missing a chunk about halfway down his upper beak, and the distal end is wobbly. After cleaning and applying neosporin to the wound, he is now isolated to see if he can figure out how to eat and drink with a broken beak. I can only assume he flew into the fence and broke it since I have not seen cannibalism (and usually that starts with feathers or feet?). So far he is alive and kicking, but I'm debating about a permanent fix. Any ideas if the beak will grow back (maybe misshapen)? Debeaking is done in chickens and some gamebirds and they still manage to survive- any hope? I've also tossed around the idea of a few very short metal pieces and some epoxy.... I'm tempted to see how things go. I'll try and get some photos up soon.
