Hi, one of my redfoots cracked his beak a few weeks ago. I noticed he was having trouble tearing greens and flowers. His bottom beak, around the hook was cracked. It took me a week to get into the vet and when he'd eat it would bend like a broken fingernail. The vet numbed it and took off the broken piece. It looks sort of ugly right now (like he could spit thru the hole if he wanted) but he can eat normally. The vet thinks it will grow back and it already seems to have a little. I am guessing that he bit into something hard and got the tip stuck and cracked it? I'll try to get a picture.
