Ours did not make it. She was very sleepy one evening and ended up passing despite hand feeding and all other interventions.

@kesca I'm so sorry Kesca. It's so heart wrenching to see the little ones fail to thrive. I hope your other chicks are doing good.

@kesca,  So sorry to hear about your loss.  It is a hard thing to see them struggle.  Take care and let us know if you need anything else.

I know this thread is older but I'm hoping for a response, I bought a few bantams today at my local tsc and one of the girls that knows me asked if id take a standard chick home. Poor baby has a bad case of scissor beak the bottom jaw looks way out of align and this poor chick has 1 eye. Should I file the top beak back and let it regrow? This looks way worse than the pics I've seen on the post, and id like to try to help it, its drinking water with save a chick not sure if it can eat I just got it today. She told me whatever hatchery sent there chicks this year has sent several like that and some have lived and were given away. I love animals and want to help it

Did she survive?  I have a little chick w/ a severely deformed beak (her bottom jaw is sideways)....I feed her mush (feed mixed w/ water) and have her separated.  She is very tiny (only a 1/3 of the size of her hatchling mates)...but she has so much energy and loves to cuddle.  I'll post pics soon.  Tanya

No Tanya, my chick did not survive even with hand feeding she could not grow properly and could never figure out how to eat on her own. Some people do have success at keeping them alive and happy. If the chick is non stop peeping and seems anxious, it's starving. There are things to try like wetting crumbles also raising the dish level to the chicks beak height. Some can figure out how to eat this way. I'm so sorry and hoping you're chick makes it through.
