I have a 2 1/2 week old buff laced polish with cross beak. It was not evident at even a week old, then around 10 days I began to notice a slight misalignment. In the last 3-4 days the top part of the beak has started growing so much that it is now pushing the bottom part even more to the side. I read in another post a week or so ago that the beak could be trimmed to help with this malformation. The chick is continuing to eat and drink and is thriving and growing at the same pace as the others so far, however, I feel at this point that if I don't try to trim it she may not continue to do so well. At the rate it is growing it is more than likely going to become a much bigger problem than it needs to be if I can trim it and keep it trimmed. Could someone with experience in trimming beaks or cross beak trimming please explain to me how to perform this task. This is my first chicken venture and I would like to do as much good as possible. I do realize that my efforts may still result in her being unable to survive with this problem but I would rather try than just let nature take it course. I would appreciate any helpful suggestions. Thanks in advance for your advice!!
