    I've got a Cochin rooster that is nearly 4 months old that has a crooked beak. My question is will this cause problems later on or will he just look funny the rest of his life? I've started calling him Opie after the character on Family Guy.

    Uh, well of course we need a pcicture of your cutie...

    I've hatched out 2 with crooked beaks but they mostly self corrected by about 6 weeks old. so I'm not really sure but I'd guess at 4 months it's pretty set.

    I have a crooked beak hen that is so old it no longer lays...
    She is a bit funny looking but holds her own with the feather kids.

    You will just have to wait and see how they get along. I hear on this site that some get so bad that they cannot eat or drink without assistance. Use compansion and judgement in these cases.

    Good luck with Opie
