How did she lose it?
Is is all of her beak or part of it? If only part then depending on how short it now is it could grow back. Hens kept in closed confined places have their top beak clipped to help stop feather pecking - theirs don't usually grow back but if it is not clipped too short it should grow back.
Staffies are softer than you think.
