    we recently had a chick hatch. when it first came out something was wrong with its neck, it was bent back and had trouble for a couple of days but that seem to rectify itself. Now there is a growth just underneath its beak, we also notice that the top part of the beak is growing much bigger/faster then the bottom and its seems to have trouble eating normally. Its getting enough food just has problems eating like a normal chick...any idea of what the growth is ?

    there is a pic with an arrow pointing to the bird with the problem,

    Not sure what the growth is but try trimming the beak so it can eat better. One of my chicks had a cross beak. It's like that for life.
