I feel very blessed -- My dozen peeps will be 3 weeks old tomorrow. I haven't lost even one! I just figured that I would lose one or two from reading on the message board about how many different things can go wrong with baby chicks. But mine -- they are growing so fast -- by leaps and bounds. They are just about completely feathered out now! Well, one of the EE's bottom beak is crossed really bad and getting worse! She can poke her head deep into the feed and manage to eat some feed, but I feel so sorry for her.... The more she grows, the worse it gets.... I will try to take a pic this morning and post it here. I've done a search on the message board and have read about people "trimming" beaks... but this one is at such a huge angle.... it's almost like her bottom jaw is out of alignment. I am a first time chick owner and don't know a thing about trimming beaks! I am squimish about stuff like and don't know if I have the stomach for it either. I would never make a good nurse or doctor LOL But can chickens live ok with a bottom beak that is crossed really bad? I don't what anything to happen to her!
