    We purchased several Easter Egg chicks this spring and have since noticed that one of them has an issue.
    It is hard to tell in the picture but the top part of its beak is curled to the side.
    Is there anything to be done?
    Does this happen often? Has anyone else had this problem?
    The chick seems otherwise fine and is eating drinking and thriving along with the other chicks.
    Help please.

    i had this happen to one of my pullets she did fine it did'nt bother her so your chick should be fine as long as its eating and drinking fine.

    I hope so. My husband and I are quite attached to it already and hoped it would continue to do well.
