Just a couple days ago, we discovered our three week old dominique (our little Dixie) chick's bottom beak is growing faster than her top beak. She appears to have a chick under-bite. She is trying to still eat, but the starter feed keeps getting lodged under her tongue, dries, and gets stuck there. She isn't able to peck things off of the ground.and her poor little tongue appears like it is hanging off the side too.
I attempted for a few seconds to file it, but she is so little and the bottom beak felt so soft. I wasn't sure if I should file it or not and wanted to get some other opinions. I've seen a lot online about trimming their top beaks, but hardly anything about trimming the bottom. Especially on chicks since she is still growing. But we are scared she isn't eating like she should.
What should we do? Is trimming at this age an option on the bottom?
