    Two day old emu has slight cross beak. I'm so sad. Can I cure it early? I've heard cell salts may help?

  2. I don't think its possible to fix crossbeaked birds- it's their skulls that are twisted, and you can't fix that. But, some people file off a bit of the tops of their beaks to make it less crossed and easier to eat for them, and make sure you have deep food/water bowls to make it easier for it to grab food...
