I'm sorry for asking a question that has likely been asked a gazillion times but please bear with me-
I have a 8 day old chick that I just noticed has scissor beak. She's smaller than the other 3 chicks from the same hatch date and I noticed it this evening when I picked them all up for forced cuddles/butt inspections. On a positive note, her crop seems to have food in it.
I'll elevate food and water tomorrow morning to give her the best shot but I'm curious how long I let this go on. Do most chickens with this have to be culled eventually or do some go on to have successful lives? Do I give her a shot as long as she is active and trying?
I apologize in advance for not being able to search all of the old threads-one of our dogs has been critically ill and is currently hospitalized. It has just been all consuming for the last several days and I'm exhausted and brain dead at this point. I haven't spent as much time with the chicks as I would have otherwise given the situation with our sweet Alix. I feel bad I just realized this tonight, I don't know how long it has been apparent.
I can try to post pics tomorrow if that would help answer some of my questions.
Thanks in advance.
