Ok Everyone,
I am new to chicken life and I'm loving it! But I came home from work today and I noticed one of my 4week old birds has a problem with her beak.
She has some spacing even with her beak closed. Should I be concerned? I have two other chicks that are able to close their beaks completely.
Am I just being overly paranoid?

Nah! Chickens can have so many problems noticing everything is a good thing! As for the spacing, I would keep an eye on it as she grows and look at it from all angles. It sounds like it might be the start of scissor beak, that's what happened to my Ralph.

Can you by chance get a photo of it? My chick also has a gap with her beak closed. However I don't think it's this scissor beak I keep hearing and reading about... Her beak closes perfectly straight. Does it look like this?
