My scissorbeak girl just eats what the others eat. She has picked up the knack of turning her head sideways to get her beak where she wants.

Does your scissorbeak have a missing eye too?

No hahahaha he's normal just a unnatural cross beak .he eats feed fine but can't grab meal worms and crickets so I'm looking for snacks like so he can grab

Hah OK. I am not sure if my girl has a crossed beak because her eye is missing or if her eye missing was a side effect of the scissorbeak! Mine likes mealworms but because of her missing eye she can't aim correctly when pecking so it takes a while! She can't do greens etc which is sad.
