    Hello,
    My Brahma boy had an injury to his top beak that left the tip broken off last season. Today we found him with the top beak partially off just about halfway and partially attached on the right side. He was not involved in any fights as he has his own private coop and is alone in his run. There seems to be a new beak that has grown beneath the old top beak. Should we leave the beak as it is and allow him to work it off or is there something we should be doing?
