    I still relatively new to chickens.
    This morning my daughter alerted me to the fact that our buff orpington's beak looked horrible wrong. We keep these chicks in a smaller cage inside of a larger coop where we have 7 larger chickens. The buff in question was fine the night before-- no one noticed any issues with the beak.
    But this morning- this greeted us. Any thoughts, suggestions? Do we attempt to align it somehow? Leave it to heal?

    I haven't been able to get a visual on her eating or drinking.
