Looks like she does have a little of a crossed beak. Plenty of info on here, do a search on crossbeak in here or emergencies. As long as she's eating and drinking, no worries. But you don't want to breed her as this is probably genetic, at least I think so.

Looks like how mine looked when it was that age. She went to the Big Coop in the Sky a couple days ago. She stopped growing the last two or three weeks. Make sure that she gets her feed in a deep bowl, preferably mashed.

My polish girl has an awful crossbeak, I believe it stunted her growth a bit and I'm actually taking her to get it clicked down tomorrow and I'm not brave enough to try it myself. Trying to fatten her up with scrambled eggs and oatmeal but so far, she just equates me with yummy food and comes running whenever she sees me. Good luck!
