Crossed beaked chicks usually get worse as they get older. You can try giving her vitamins. Ours only lived to be 6 months old because they are hard to feed. They have to scoop their food from a deep dish. They can't get food off the ground or out of your hand. They are the sweetest chicks because they learn to depend on you. Good luck.
If you wet down feed, it's a lot easier for them, but I agree - a lot of maintenance and they do really depend on humans. Very sweet. I had one scissor beaked rooster named Edward Scissor Beak. He was very delayed in development, and could have used a lot more attention with feeding. If you have time for it, they can live relatively well, but left to their own, they will not thrive.
Thanks everyone for the feedback. One more nine weeker. Cockerel or pullet? I have had completely mixed reviews.
She is stunning!!
Her orange in the wings is very delicate and feminine. She has no comb to speak of, and she has an even pattern with skinny legs.
Thank you! Her name is Gloria and she is my favorite. I thought that she was probably a girl, but I had someone say 100% boy and others say 100% girl. She does not even really have a comb at all. Only a pink area where it should be that is raised like 1 mm. Is that normal?
Having some questionable genders popping up in my flock. Do irredescent feathers always mean a male? To my not so well trained eye these chickens display no other obvious signs of being roosters except that some of their large (rounded) tail feathers are getting a bright gleen to them. Their combs and waddles are still pale and small, their legs aren't exceptionally large and all their feathers seem to be rounded despite their pointy patterns.
This is StarBurst, who I am REALLY hoping is a pullet.
Starburst looks very much like one of my EE pullets.
I hope so. She and one of the others have some of that green sheen to their tail feathers today. I love their patterns.
How about Mab? I think she's the only one of the Easter Eggers with no real pattern to her feathers but she has no comb growth, it is still pale and no waddles either.
Hi! I'm new to byc and to chicken raising. About 3 mos ago (at end of march) I got 3 EE. I'm hoping they are not all Roos!! None are crowing but the 2 with white around head fight some. In hoping at least the one without white may be a hen. Any help would be appreciated!
