We're new backyard chicken-keepers. We were happily and accidentally inducted into your ranks a few months ago when we found the below-pictured young lady wandering around by a highway. All's been well. We got her a companion, built an impromptu coop and bought laying pellets from the feed store. Anyway, I just noticed her beak like this today. She's still eating normally, and I don't see any change in behavior otherwise, but I'm still concerned, of course. So, backyardchickens, what's your diagnosis? She looks pretty severe & scary in this pic, but she's the best!
