    I am not sure if there is anything you can do from my experience, if the baby can eat and drink then there is no need to intervene.... I had an EE baby that flew out of brooder and hit the floor and had a crooked beak and she ate and drank just fine, and she has been fine since.... as long as she can do that I would think she would be fine

    There is no cure for it but I have 2 cross beaked chickens and they do fine. You just have to have a deep dish so they can kinda scoop it.
