Two weeks ago I got some new chicks, they are 3 weeks old today. When I got them home I inspected them and noticed one of them had a beak that wasn't right. I was planning on "watching" her to see how the beak would grow. I noticed today it seems more dramatic. The top part of the beak seems to be okay. The bottom part of the beak seems to grow off to one side. I hope to keep her. I was wondering how this could effect her eating/drinking. She seems to be okay for now but notice "she" always has food/mash on her beak and her fluff on one side of her face has food/water on it. I also worry about if she will be picked on when I put the chicks with my older girls. That won't be for about a month or two. Could the older girls "know" she has a deformaty and pick on her or could they accept her? The pictures was taken 2/22/2012 she doesn't have her beak open. I will try to get a better picture tomorrow.
