Beak problems

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I got this little guy at the tractor supply store. He has a crooked beak. Anything I can do? She said that they've had him for almost a week. He/she eats and drinks fine.

If the chicken is eating and drinking fine, I think everything is ok.

Sometimes they stay mild, and sometimes the crossbeak gets so severe the chicken can't eat or drink without assistance.

Only time will tell if it gets worse or not, but in my experience it does as they grow. I've had to put a few down because of it.

Search for crossbeak in the search bar and you'll find lots of threads on how people helped their chickens along. Sometimes filing will help if it's not too bad.

Good luck!
