    Unfortunately I really think you have no choice but to let it die or cull it yourself. If you let it live it will never survive in the long run, so best just get it over with before you get attached to it. It is basically deformed and definitely the runt of those that hatched. The good news is you have some normal chicks so focus on them, nothing you can do about the other one. Mother nature at work, sorry.

    I just had a similar problem. We had a chick hatch with no top beak... My mom couldn't bring herself to cull it, so I ended up doing it so she didn't have to. It's really the most humane thing to do at this point, though it really really really sucks. I'm so sorry
