    What is the scissor beak I keep hearing about? Does any one have a picture? I don't think I have one, just curious what to look out for.

    Wow, that was severe. Poor chickens, that looks terrible. Definitely think I could spot one if those.

    We had a cross beak chicken. She was the sweetest thing, but very needy. We had to feed her in deep dishes so she could scoop up her food. She could not pick up anything straight off the ground. She died at 8 months old. There are stories about people tube feeding them to keep them alive. We just decided to let her live as long as she could without those kinds of measures. She was one of my husbands favorite chicken. Cross beak can be genetic, caused by malnutrition of parents or illness (lack of vitamin D).

    My 7wk old blrw is getting red to the comb and wattle area, is this about the right age for transforming into a roo? Also seems to have some red in the tail feathers?
