Our five year old found two of the girls pecking at Violet's beak this morning, and what we saw has me pretty freaked out. I think the pictures speak for themselves. She is not actively bleeding, but the lower 2/3 of her beak is definitely separated from the top part. What should we do - try to reattach it, gently tear it off to regrow, leave it alone? DH thinks there is something under the torn part of her beak but he's not sure. Should we put some neosporin or anything else on it? Why does this stuff always happen on the days when the feed stores are closed?? Here's her info from the form stickied at the top of the board: 4 month old Welsummer, weight unknown but she seems average sized compared to the rest of the flock. Her behavior is subdued and she seems stressed about being separated from the others. We're not sure how it happened, but the others were pecking at her beak when DS discovered the injury. We're not sure if she is eating. She's pecking at the ground, but when offered her favorite treat (nasturtium), she pecked at it and then backed off with beak open and closed her eyes. Her poop appears fine. So far we have dabbed off some dried blood with a wet paper towel, but have not done anything else. If it would be relatively easy to treat her ourselves, we will do so but if not we can try to locate a vet for her. She lives in a Playhouse-style coop with a dirt floor, 1/2" hardware cloth all around, and pine shavings inside the coop area. She free ranges a lot but this happened before we let her out for the day and she was fine last night. Thanks for any help.
