    I traded a roo for this hen and noticed that she had been debeaked. I'm not a fan of the practice and I'm hoping that her beak will grow back :( any info on this would be awesome! Thanks!

    Nope, it won't grow back. But it doesn't look too severe and she shouldn't have any issues eating or drinking. From her nice glossy feathers, I'm thinking she's been doing just fine [​IMG]
