    I have this one chicken that won't leave the others beaks alone. She goes up & pecks at each chickens beak. I know they clean each others beaks here & there. This girl is obsessed with making sure everyone has a spotless beak. Not just one are two all 15 girls.

    I've never heard about a chicken that does that before!
    It soudns like you've got a very unique girl on your hands [​IMG]

    Personally, I can't think of any way in which this could be harmful... but let's just hope it's a little quirk!
