    One of my chicks has cross beak and she is only a few days old. I know that it cant be cure and the best thing to do for her is to trim the beak. I know it will problably worsen when she grows because it just started and i feel like she might die from her beak. Should i give her a chance or no? [​IMG]

    I would try giving the chick a chance. But keep a close eye on the chick

    Totally agree with brookiejo......just leave it and see how it develops. It may be able to cope with eating and generally 'nosing' around but if not, it probably will be best to cull it. :(
