I ordered some baby chicks from a hatchery. Its been a few weeks since I got them about 3 weeks ago. we have about 35 chicks and I had noticed something odd about one for a while. I don't pick them up unless I have to,mainly I check on them throughout the day and feed/water them. It looked like one had something stuck to it by its beak but seemed to still have it this weekend. I was able to catch it as I thought I would remove what was stuck on it. But after getting it I saw that it was the chicks beak. The bottom part is curved to one side and the two beak parts do not align up. I think due to its fullness it is able to eat, the bottom beak had feed in it. So I don't think its not getting nourishment. Has anyone had this to happen? If so when it got older was there anything you had to different, like feed it a certain way? So far other than the beak it seems happy and fine. I don't have pictures but I will try to get some.
