In the Brooder

Here is a pic of our easter egger hen "Scoop," who as you can see dislocated her beak when she was two days old. I though for sure she would die, but our little Scoop is a fighter and is now 5 months old. My question is this: she is obviously unable to eat as well as her sisters and is much smaller than the rest of the flock. Her beak is starting to become hooked and I'm wondering if I need to file it periodically?? She is the sweetest little hen, and as long as she's still kicking I will do whatever it takes to keep her healthy--whatever that is!! Please help, what should I do to help her?
