    Hi All,
    I have a baby chick who is 3 weeks old and her beak is starting to curve to the right. It doesn't stop her from eating or drinking, so I don't imagine that it's a serious problem right now. Is this something that could become a problem as she gets older?

    Cross-beak can be serious if it keeps them from eating or drinking. Do a search on here... I think there was a thread not too long ago on it. You may have to trim the beak a little at a time to help... I do that with one of my Silkies. [​IMG]
