Hi guys, I am worried for this this Easter egger chick...I've been meaning to post this for a while since I noticed this phenomenon: her top beak is naturally longer than her lower beak. She had a sister who had the same problem but worse, as she seemed to have NO lower mandible and tumor-looking growth on her throat. Poor thing probably died of starvation and I couldn't get it to eat when isolated either.
I'm afraid this one will follow suit, though she appears to eat and move. However, you can tell it's not flourishing like her playmates, and she usually just walks around, never run. She is SUPER tame and doesn't seem to mind/be scared of much (even my hens). One thing both did though is always eat food first...presumably bc they could eat less than the normal beaked chicks.
What can I do!?
