    It appears that one of my chickens is developing a cross beak. I was told by my friend who has a plethora of chickens that it will get worse and worse. So far she seems to be eating fine. How do I take care of her and keep her alive as long as possible? Thanks!

    many cross beak chickens live long, healthy, productive lives- if it is eating fine then it will likely be okay. If you see it struggling to eat try using a deeper feed dish for it so it can scoop food out, you can also dampen feed for it which will make it easier for it to eat. [​IMG]

    I had this happen with one of my leghorn roos. He seemed to do just fine with no intervention until I processed him at 17 weeks.
