    I have three belgium antwerp chicks (month old) two of which have cross beak, one more sever than the other. They eat fine and are not having any issues as a result of their issues, but is there anything I should be doing to help correct this or just let it go on and ensure they have food and water.

    I have a three month old silkie with cross beak...doesn't seem to affect him much except his one eye waters alot because of some kind of internal pressure. I may have to cull him one day but for now he is doing fine and in with the flock.
