    I'm not sure what's wrong with my one chickens beak. It's been like this since August.
    Here's a picture of it.

    Are you referring to the upper beak being so long? I am totally a newbie, but I was watching a youtube video on showing chickens, and in that the people trimmed beaks, much like a dogs nails, even used dog nail clippers. If it is that the beak is just super long, perhaps her behavior isn't keeping it short. If you think it has just grown long and you just noticed it now, perhaps look into how to trim beaks. They have quicks just like a dog's nails which you don't want to cut.

    I'm sure an expert will chime in with what is really for sure going on.

    Yes, the top part of the beak is so long! It's really weird. Like I said, I just noticed it a month ago, so maybe I'll look into trimming her beak.

    Yeah, I bet that is all you need to do. Youtube has tons of videos.
