Where did you get them...chicks or older birds?I just purchased a couple of Red Sexlink hens and didn't notice that one of theyre upper beaks is is shorter than theyre lower. Can that be a problem?
Theyre about 4 1/2 months old and haven't started laying, yet. I bought them from a Poultry Farm outside San Antonio, Tx.Where did you get them...chicks or older birds?
Probably had their beaks 'clipped' or 'debeaked'.
Commercial birds often have this done to keep them from eating their coop mates in crowded conditions.
As long as they can eat they'll be fine.
