    I have a 4 mo old Ameraucana pullet that has a crooked beak. She seems to eat and drink ok and is gaining weight. I use a nipple water system but because I am not sure she can use it effectively I also have a regular water container until I can get the cups. Should I have the beak corrected for some reason or leave it alone if she is thriving? She is not the bottom of the pecking order either.

    I have no clue on this but my opinion if she seems healthy and happy and keeps up with the others I would let her be she can just be special... could u post a picture I'm curious to see what she looks like
