    I have a Guinea hen that has a facial deformation. She must have been crushed by bigger chicks at some point. Her top beak is severely scissored. She has been able to eat well although she is smaller than my other 2 Guineans that are boys. Recently I noticed her top beak is starting to curl. Can I clip this back along with her bottom black so she can eat better? Any help would be appreciated.

    I can't see how to add pics, but if anyone can tell me how, I can show you what she looks like.

    Aww she is so cute!

    I would trim the side of her top beak, it looks like it's curl over a lot and force the other beak more further to the other side, and I would not touch the bottom in case I got her tongue.

    Beaks are always growing so this one might just grow back to normal :)
