This morning I noticed one of my ladies has something "not right" with her lower beak. It's starting to grow to the side I fear it may be a result of damage sustained during a thrill killing spree by a dog some weeks ago. At the time I assessed the hens and all looked fine with no visible damage except for the 2 that were killed but since then this one's beak just doesn't seem to want to be straight. Really considering having a vet look at her but hubby says he will eat her before spending money we don't really have at the vet for "just a hen" OMG they are my ladies who contribute to our food supply not just a food source, what is wrong with men. At this stage it isn't affecting her eating or in any other way that I've noticed. They roam and forage about 4hrs daily will it sort itself out since its not overly long (maybe protrudes 1/8 inch) to the left or should I try clipping it back and if so is it possible for me to mess it up and have her bleed to death or something.
