    I have had my starter flock for a while now,
    but my Ameraucana's beak has gotten REALLY crooked.

    The top is to the left and the bottom is to the right.

    She seems to be eating fine...(she is the biggest chick right now)

    How long do you think she will last?
    She's about 11 weeks now.
    Is there anyway to help her or fix her beak?

    Any suggestions/advice is appreciated.
    Thanks.

    Here she is

    I still would like some suggestions on how to keep her well or what's best to do with her.
    It would be much appreciated.

    Hey there! I had a golden comet with a beak very similar. I sold her at 3 years to my dismay and she did great!! Don't fret yet:)
