I've had several of them turn out that way. They will live for 2 - 4 months, slowly starving to death. It's so sad because they are usually the sweetest, friendliest ones of all.my 4 week old chicken has cross beak bad. we noticed it when she was 1 week old but didnt think anything about it. it has gotten much worse. can anyone tell me if they think she will survive?
The live chicks won't bother a dead one. Maybe grown chickens will bother a dead one but I've never had chicks do it.Thank you guys for your help/advice. We don't have the time to feed her through a feeding tub, and i surely don't want her to suffer.If she dies in the box before i get home, will the other chickens eat her and turn into cannibals? I heard that could happen, just getting it clarified.

The bad thing about a chick like that is that they are usually otherwise healthy. And they will live until they starve to death.
