    I purchased my chicks from a local feed store. After a couple of days I noticed the beak of one of them is offset. Is there anything I can do for her?

    It will just get worse. One of mine had a beak similar when it was younger. SHe is now 5 weeks old and it is much worse. She has problems eating unless it is a big pile she can get her hole beak into and is smaller than the others, but otherwise still good. Search twisted beak, others of us have discussed this before.
