    So my female ducks beak is chipped off on the edge. She seems fine and it doesn't seem to bother her. I read that I should put cream on it but she is nearing and rarely leaves her nest. If I go to grab her she isn't very happy. Should I wait to do something? Or will it get worse? There hasn't been any blood or anything with it.

    I would leave her alone. I had a kid try to play with a ducking a bit back and ended up scaring the duckling so bad the poor thing cut its beak, but it healed up nice and quick.
