    I had two hens get shut out of their coop today. The wind blew their door shut!
    When they entered the coop I noticed that both beaks were bleeding when the comb meets the beak. I feel so bad.
    Also, one of the hens has a thinning beak (at the end of the beak). I don't know what to do.
    Has anyone experienced this?

    I guess not! Can you get a pic?
    Make sure the others don't pick at the bloody ones.
