    Crossbeaks are genetic?

    I always thought it was genetic, but I just read a great article "Crossed beak overview from MY Pet Chicken" that says it is caused by the chick not positioning itself correctly for hatching, a vitamin deficiency, injury or infection. They say a crossed beak can be - - but is not commonly - - a genetic issue, even though it's often mistaken for one. Interesting!

    If you would like to read the article, it can be found at~ www.mypetchicken.com/backyard-chickens/chicken-help/Crossed-beak-overview-H254.aspx

    Just curious? But why are you against shipping? And do you still have the CB? Just been wondering if you were able to find a loving home yet?
