    Help!! One of my muscovy hurt his beak(bill) here is a picture...I have no idea what to do, I've currently separated him to make sure he doesn't injure himself any further... What else can I do? Will it heal in its own?

    [​IMG] Does he have a split portion /crack? I can't see it well enough. Some people have made beak repairs with super glue - doctors use it sometimes instead of sutures.

    You can soak a tea bag with superglue gel and apply it with tweezers, just the paper part of the tea bag. then use a fingernail emery board to smooth it out . that is if it is cracked or broken
    Welcome and enjoy BYC!
