    Hi! My 5 month old Americana Luna has a cracked beak. They got freaked out yesterday afternoon and she basically ran into the wall/feeder container. I didn't realize she cracked it unil this morning. She laid her egg and since then has been really lethargic, so I'm sure she hasn't been eating/drinking. She cracked up high, by her nose, but then the top beak end is missing a bit.

    I separated her and a friend into a smaller cage down on our lawn and put deep waterer/mash/feed containers in there (as per others suggested), and I could keep her separated tonight with a friend too. Is there anything else I can do? It seems the bleeding has stopped. HELP!
