    Has anyone received pullets from a Poultry and there peeks be cut or trimmed ? I've had mine about a week and just now notice this just wanted to make sure it was not some kind of disease.Sorry if this is in the wrong section.

    Well lots of hatcheries sell pullets that have had their beaks trimmed. I don't think there's a disease that causes anything like it. You just now noticed after a week? Were their beaks normal before now?

    I don't know if they were or not but they seem to eat and drink fine there not having a problem with it . I just did not see it when I brought them home.
