This cockerel had dry pox over his upper beak, and when the scabs fell off, so did his upper beak! I think his upper beak 'died' a while ago but just now came off (it stayed small as his head and body grew). I think part of his nasal cavity is open on one side, too I had noticed his lower was growing longer than his scabbed over upper beak and actually trimmed it a week and a half ago so that's why it's blunt on the end, but you can see it's really long now. (I was out of town for a week and they were in DH's care). What should I do? Should we put him down? Is an 'epoxy' beak a realistic solution and if so, what kind do you use and how do you do it? I haven't seen him eat since the scabs came off with his upper beak. I put neosporin and blue-kote over the little part that bled. He's got start & grow crumble for feed. He's inside with warmth with a couple of younger chicks. Here he is with a little blue-kote. I've got another even littler one which I think will have the same problem (he has even worse pox scabs). I feel so terrible. We had about 5 broodies happily sitting on eggs then got hit with 5 straight weeks of rain/85 degree temperatures in September in SE Georgia. The mosquitos were absolutely horrible and no amount of cleaning or plug-in fans could keep them off the chicks or mamas. We brought all of the ones inside that we could, and thankfully some had minor cases of dry pox. Others with bad cases (but not over the top beak) have cleared up with TLC thankfully. These 2 little guys had it the worst, and apparently the worst places. The scabs/damage are giving them crossbeaks, too as you can see. I'm thinking we probably should put these two down, unless anyone has any good solutions.
