I have a Jersey Giant 5 wk old chick that suddenly has cross beak. We checked his jaw and he looks to have broken the lower jaw. He is eating and drinking fine. What do we need to do. These guys are in a huge pen by themselves and safe from predators. We are just concerned on how to take care of him. All of the others are fine. We aren't sure how this happened either.

I am certainly no expert. I have read cross beak can be
from hatch or suddenly come about later. My chick had it at 2 weeks. She is doing fine. They may need to be fed in a deeper dish. They eat wet crumbles (like oateal) well.
