Hello, there! I'm Jennifer in Indiana, and I am so happy to be among such wonderful chicken people! I'm a brand new chicken mom to 7 sweet chicks, now 6 weeks old. One of my Americana chicks turned out to be a 'cross beak'. She looked totally normal until about her 2nd week. When I realized something wasn't right, I turned to the internet, and found this site with tons of great info about cross beaks. My little Cleo probably wouldn't have made it without the advice I got here! She has a pretty tough time eating, but now I make her a special porridge out of her chick starter, that she merrily gobbles down, and she's finally gaining some weight. I've committed to helping her thrive, rather than sending her to the rainbow bridge so soon. I'm totally in love with her sweetness! Anyway, thanks for reading, and I can't wait to learn so much more here. Here's a couple photos of little Cleo. Isn't she cute?
