Buff Orpington with scissor beak..need advise!

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hi all! I'm still new to this website and this is my first time with my own chickens! So I have 6 buff orpingtons and sadly one was started to show signs of the cross beach about a week ago, they are now coming up on 5 weeks and his beak looks like this. It has gotten dramatically worse. He/she seems to eat ok, a little smaller than the rest but I am at the point in time where I need to either cull him/her or keep it. By the looks of it does anyone have experience? Will it only get worse? Am I better off letting him/her go? sad.png

nah he/she will do fine my neighbor has an EE with a scissor beak that sticks out at 90 degrees of the top beak and she is thriving going on two years old, just make sure you have deep food bowls and she/he will do fine with eating.
