One of my poor chickens has a cracked beak. The ole girl can still eat just fine, but I worry that it will crack further if I don't do something about it. What do you guys recommend for these types of injuries?
Where did you get that?Super glue was originally designed to repair breaks in human skin, whether it be accidental or during a surgical procedure, so the glue is the perfect solution to your chicken's problem, as Andrew T has pointed out. Good luck. Let us know how it goes.
Duck Tape is a specific brand of tape. The brand produces all kinds of tape. Some of it's really pretty so it's great for wrapping presents. When reading the answer, I thought Farm Hand was just making a pun, hence the woo hoo. I don't think he was actually recommending that anyone put tape on the chicken's beak. Digger didn't seem to take it that way either. I hear ya though, none of us wants to hurt our animals so it's good to be clear.No, cutting it off is NOT a good idea. Glad to hear that your prayers were answered, and that the super-glue worked just fine. I'm always amazed at the suggestion of "DUCK TAPE." First of all, there is no such thing! It is called "duct" tape, because it us widely used in the HVAC industry, or at least used to be, to seal the sheet metal ducts where they join each other, and to hold them firmly in place. Sealing is the main function. But everyone calls the stuff "Duck" tape, like it's something to be used on ducks!
