I have a 4 week old EE with a long upper beak that is keeping to herself under the heat lamp and doesn't squawk much when held and just generally is not as energetic as the other chicks. I have not noticed her eating or drinking lately but I also work full time so I can't say I'm constantly watching, either. Her upper beak has always been longer and she was eating fine but now I'm worried. She does not have scissor beak, the upper and lower beaks are perfectly aligned. Should I worry about this? and what can I give her to make sure she is being properly fed or just to bolster her some?
