    My rooster got hit by a car yesterday. He will recover, but a small portion of the tip of his beak got broken off. It doesn't seem to prevent him from eating. Does anyone know if it will grow back? I know it doesn't if it's de-beaked, but don't they use a hot tool to cauterize it with, to prevent regrowth?
