I was just outside in the coop visiting some of the chickens. Juno (a RIR/Red Star mix pullet(?) that we hatched) and her friend, Peanut (a Buff Orp/Splash Cochin pullet that we hatched) were in the coop, and the rest were outside. I noticed that Peanut's beak looked different...and when I looked at it, it looked crooked. Then I looked closer and saw that it wasn't that her beak was deformed, but that it had cracked and was crooked. The crack has some dried blood on it, so it wasn't today that it happened. I didn't notice it the last time I was here at my dad's house, which was last weekend, so it happened this past week. Peanut is about...4 months now (born on June 12th, 2009). She looks to be eating fine on her own despite her cracked beak and she acts normal and it doesn't seem to bother her. ______________________________ What should I do??? I'm worried that it will get infected or something or it will completely fall off. The crack can be seen from the inside of her mouth, so it's not just a deep scratch on the surface of her beak. It's about as long as a little less than half her beak. Here's some pictures to help: (sorry if they turn out blurry) (notice how her beak is crooked and the crack has some dried blood on it) I hope Peanut turns out OK; will the beak just heal and always be crooked? Will it get infected and fall off? Any advice is appreciated! Thanks!
