Discovered this last night. I did have the heat source too close to the birdies for a while last night, trying to tweek the temperature. Not sure how else to explain the injury. As far as I can tell she is OK, eating and drinking. Any idea what happened to her? They’re in a large dog carrier. I have no idea what happened. RESOLVED: Chick supplier has their beaks trimmed by laser- this, supposedly, does not hurt the chick and the beak (tip of the beak, on the top) eventually falls off. It WILL regrow, but less pointy and less destructive as they peck each other, this being the whole reason for the stupid procedure.
