    The top & bottom of one of my baby chicks' beak doesn't line up properly but she can still eat & drink...does anyone have any suggestions as to what I can do or if there is anything I can do for her?? :/

    Hi,

    We had a little Japanese hen with this problem, sweetest hen we ever had. I'd just make sure to clip the bent part regularly so it doesn't over grow and become a problem.

    Use a pair of new/ sharp dog nail clippers and trim the ends of the beak to where they connect. Not too far back, they will bleed. The white tips look like enough. Try that.
