Cross bill duckling?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Has anyone had a cross beak duckling before? He was born October 20 and had no signs of a cross beak but just in the last week it's been growing more and more crossed. I've never seen this in the 5 years I've had my ducks. I've been googling and searching on here for any similar story's but haven't found anything.

I just hatched my first ducklings, Welsh Harlequins, and out of the 6, one female was born with a crossed bill. She is now 3 days old and eating and drinking fine with her brothers and sisters. According to Storey's Guide, crossed bills happen when the bill is injured during the hatch and isn't a hereditary or genetic problem. How is your little one doing?
