I just noticed Christine has a chipped tip of her beak. Should I be worried?

It might be painful for a few days. Try to keep her eating and drinking. Sometimes putting feed in some water and making a mash in a tall bowl can make it easier to eat.

Do you think she may have hurt her beak in some wire fencing or a peck injury? Here is some reading about beak injury:

I’m not sure, I took this pic after I left them out late this morning. The Coop cam didn’t show me much activity this but someone seems to have flown up above the coop door where I wouldn’t assume there’s much room but there’s a trail of poop for evidence. Maybe she flew into the hardware cloth??
