    About three days ago I noticed that one of our turkeys has developed a lopsided beak. This turkey has been fine since we bought her at a local farm supply store. His beak was clipped before we bought him, and that grew back normally.
    His beak is very crooked and I have read online that once this shift starts there isn't much you can do because they will stop eating and drinking. However I am hoping that we can somehow reverse this or at least stop it. Our family has grown very attached to our flock of ten and it would be devastating to lose them. Any words of advice would be much appreciated.

    I thought that you could shave the sides, but I don't know. Until you figure it out she could eat soft foods like oatmeal and eggs/yogurt. Good luck and I wish I knew more!!!

    Thank you, now the hard part will be finding someone to shave it. I'm to scared to do it myself!
