We have a really friendly lavender orpington cockeral called Billy.
Just recently he had started trying to get into the feed bins and being pushy about it too! This change in behaviour was a sign that something was amiss.
When we caught him to check him over we realised the top of his beak had grown and he was unable to pick corn up from the floor anymore and he was clever enough to work out if he put his face in the corn bin he could get corn into his mouth.
We took advice on how to trim the beak without hurting him and he decided to spend the day up high so we couldn’t reach him.
Thankfully it has now been sorted and Billy is happily scratching and pecking about on the ground as before.
