    I'm so glad I did not let her bring that chick here. What would cause the beak to break off like that and is there anything she should do for the chick?

    is it the whole top beak, or just the end of the top??.....chickens are sometimes debeaked when they are chicks, so its not like they cant live w/o it. I dont think there is much else u can do.
