Well I am new here and new to raising chickens. For several weeks I had been building my coop and preparing for birds when a neighbor gave my three Rhode Island Reds. She had purchased the three birds and the other chickens she already had were very aggressive to them. One of the RIRs ended up with a broken beak and was beaten up pretty bad. She wanted to separate them but had no way in her coop so she gave them to us. This was the Wednesday before last so they have been with us for 10 days. This bird that had the broken beak was not acting well at all when she around the birds that were attacking her but she cheered right up once here at my house. When we brought her over, you could see that her beak was broken and she was oozing mucus all over the place. Since she has been here, she has been eating and the beak has scabbed over and seems to be healing. She is a sweet girl and the nicest of the bunch. I am concerned though that she continues to produce this mucus. This morning she shook her head and it reminded me of a scen from "Turner and Hooch" Is this something I should be concerned about?
