    I have an 8 wk old auracana chick who all of a sudden has what looks like a dislocated bottom beak. I don't remember ever seeing it before. I think she may have gotten it caught in the fencing? I don't know what to do. Does anyone have suggestions? There are no vets anywhere close to me who deal with chickens.

    Could you post a photo. Otherwise do a search on cross beak or scissor beak to see if that's what is going on.

    That's the best I could do. She's a fast little buggar.
