We have a OE Banty Gal who went broody 7 weeks ago. We brought her inside and she's been living a very pampered life while she hatched 1 egg (not hers). The chick had serious problems in hatching-- so we asisted then tried giving the egg & exposed chick back to her-- but she attacked it.. so we are raising him/her separately. Heres my question tho: In the 7 weeks that she's been inside, some small injuries she had are scabbed over- but not healing, and none of the feathers from the back of her head that the roosters yanked are growing back at all... Is this due to her eating less?? Also-- her beak has grown! Seems just the top has grown a thin curve down, like a hook, and it has gotten a chip in it...seems like it would make picking-up small feed difficult for her... Should I trim the tip???? Thank You Much for your help Folks! You've all gotten us thru some difficult and nerve-wracking times!!
