We sadly hatched a hen back in April whom at 3 weeks developed a crooked beak. We syringe feed her 4 x a day to keep her crop full. My question is.....will she ever lay an egg? And if she doesn't (or if she does), will this cause health problems for her?

If she lives long enough, she will lay an egg. Usually the crooked beak gets worse and worse over time and they starve to death. Kindest thing to do may be to end it now.
