    The mother bite the baby's beek just below its
    nostrils, and 1/2 of the tip is not attached anymore,
    but is just hanging there. The baby (about one
    month old) is still lively and eating the soft food
    I am offering, but how long can this go on for? He
    will need a beek to survive.

    Will the beek grow back, like a nail?
    Should I take the tip right off?
