    I have a chick that is half the size of her siblings. Her top beak has grown really long. I caught her and then I noticed her bottom beak isn't growing and doesn't move right. The muscle below the beak moves forward separately from the bottom beak. I thought about filing down the top beak but I think the quick is almost the whole length of the top beak. Is there anything I can do for her? I would post a picture but I'm new and haven't figured out how to add a picture yet. Any ideas would be appreciated. Thank you!
