1 of my 2 week old today chicks has a cross beak. Up until today, she seemed able to drink and eat OK. She was as big as the other chicks and seemed to weight as much too. Today, I haven't seen her eat or drink. I dipped her beak in some water and she did seem to swallow some, but she's just standing around and sleeping. She just doesn't act right. Should I try to trim this beak, and if so, with what? Nail trimmers? This is the 1 chick my autistic dd has picked out as her own, and now I'm afraid we're going to lose her.Please help!
