    I cannot say what to do or how to repair it but I can tell you that even if it is not fixed he should be fine. We have 2 roosters and the second-in-command, chuck lost half his top beak when he was 4 months old. He is now a year old and doing fine. Other than us occasionally feeding him seperate in a deep filled dish he is no different than the others.
