HELP may have just killed a chick. - Page 2

*UPDATE*

The chick has died, however it never would have made it out of its shell, as it had NO Skull, a deformed beak (very short upper beak, no egg tooth) and it's brain growing out of the centre of its forehead.

I did a bit of research and It appears to be a genetic issue, I did let the breeder know.

Oh, I am so sorry. The poor little thing. You did your best and that is all we can do.
