    My Black Australorp, Amy, has a bad broken beak and I want to help her. It's not in place and her beak is too long and I need help to know how to trim it a certain way. I don't have a picture of her, but will post one soon. So could any of y'all help me??

    Hello there and welcome to BYC! [​IMG]

    I am so sorry about your bird. Do you have an avian vet you can take her too? If not, you will want to post this in our emergency section for more help. Mountain Peeps has left you with the link. I hope you can get her straightened out soon. [​IMG]

    Could it possibly be some form of "scissor beak" ??

    Ah-HA!! Amy, this is what's known as "scissor beak" ... Here's a page worth reading about this very thing and should prove helpful to you:
