I was looking on line about de-beaking and ran across this site. I just picked up two small hens and both are de-beaked. The problem is whoever de-beaked the hens, have no idea what they are doing. I am presently looking for information on how to correct the ones beak. It looks like someone peeled the lower beak instead of trimming it. The beak is so jagged that the hen needs to turn her head sideways to eat.
I think de-beaking should be outlawed. Why does our country allow such cruelty? If someone know what I could do to fix it please let me know
