    Was hanging out with my girls this evening and noticed that Natasha has a split in her beak... she seems to be eating ok, but I'll be watching her closely to make sure. Would you do anything about this? Do you think it'll grow out?

    Here are some pictures (I'm also fearing she's a roo, the hub says no but what do you think?)

    I just had a showgirl roo with a split just like that. It looked a tad too long so I put some cement pavers in the pen so he would have something to rub it on and now its gone!

    Thanks Sharon, that's good news! I already have a paver in the run so maybe she'll use it!

    Nope, all girl you got. And the split will grow out if she doesn't file it before it can

    Yeah...glad to hear the vote for her being a girl!!! Natasha has a different look than her sisters, they all have the poofy cheek thing going for them and her comb is growing much faster. Also glad for another vote that her beak will be alright...yeah for 'tasha!!!
