I found my black Ameruacana today with the top layer of her break pealed back. I do not know how it happened, but I am a little concerned about her ability to eat. She seem to be perky, but she is kept with two other birds, so I'm also concerned about those two picking at her beak. Any suggestions on what to do would be greatly appreciated. Has this happened to anyone before? And if it has how well did it heal? And how long did it take to heal?
Thank you!

That may be painful for a few days, but it should eventually heal. I would try to make sure that she is getting food and water. She might take some dry feed mixed with a lot of water to make a mash out of a bowl. Soft scrambled egg is good too. Sometimes poking their beak through chicken wire or hardware cloth fencing can do that. If she is being pecked, you could separate her in a dog crate left inside the coop for a day or two.
