    Hi, I have three 8-9 weeks old hens, and they all have beak injury this morning.
    what might cause this? the fight? the hardware cloth?
    Do I need to separate them?
    any response will be appreciated.

    Looks like they just cut themselves a little bit. This is common, nothing to worry about. They will heal very soon.
    It is probably from the hardware cloth, as it has very tiny wire.
