I have 6 chicks that are about 2 weeks old, the other 5 chicks beaks are in great shape. For some unknown reason this ones beak is growing too long on top. She does seem to eat slower than the other chicks, but is still in good health.

Is that chick a different breed? I've never heard of that, but if it doesn't impair the chick I would say don't do anything with it. Eating slow is ok as long as she is eating.

It is the same breed and age as the others, i think it might be a birth defect or maybe she just isn't pecking around as much as the others so it grew like that.

Also it seems to be growing longer and longer, her beak was like the others at first
