I have no idea what happened but part of my chicken's beak is broken off. I think maybe the beak broke when the chicken (named baby) pecked a rock...she's young (less than a year old) so I hope it can grow back but I don't think beaks grow back. The top beak is what is damaged. The bottom beak is perfectly fine. I don't know much about beaks but it seems like they have layers or something because a soft tissue is exposed on part of it. I hadn't noticed this before so It probably happened very recently. Will it grow back and what do I do? It is sunday and my exotic vet is closed (regular vets in San Antonio Texas don't take care of chickens for some reason.) She seems fine other than shes very cautious as she pecks the ground. She also doesn't peck as much either. I have seen reconstructive surgeries done on birds with damaged beaks but I don't think its severe enough for that. She can still eat and drink as far as I can tell. Also how often do chickens have to have their shots? All of mine had theirs as chicks.
