    I came home today and found my goose's beak chipped. The very tip (egg tooth area) is chipped off. Right now it's sort of hanging there. It looks like she may be in pain. She's not the sort to hang out with her beak in her back feathers. Now she won't take it out. There's no blood, but i don't know what to do. She doesn't want to eat or chew anything(and she chews EVERYTHING). Any help would be great

    Did it fall off? She's chipped/broken her bean "the tip of a gooses bill". It should fall or and regrow, or if its impeding her eating you can take nail clippers and clip off any that isn't attached.

    We went on a trip, and when I got back she looked better. The bean ended up falling off, but it looks like there's a crack still
