I have always noticed her not being able to eat well. I thought she needed a top-knot trim. When I picked her up I was amazed at how skinny she was. I trimmed the top-knot that is when I noticed her beak deformity. It is not crossed and is very well aligned but the upper beak has a sharp curve to it. I put her by herself with a cup of feed that was deep and she is eating like she has never eaten before. POOR BABY!! Can it be trimmed to fix the problem or is this her lot in life? She drops or misses her food altogether whil eating on the ground. By the way I am not sure if she is male or female actually but we have called her "she" since day one. She is about 5 months old.
