    How can I fix this baby's beak? I've heard of trimming to "re-shape" the beak but this is her bottom half that's crooking.

    is it even fixble?

    she is a feed store EE, about 1wk old.

    this just occured today, her beak was fine yesterday.

    It could be genetic or it could be an incubation issue. She isn't to bad, I've seen way worse cross beakes that live happy lives. I used to have 2 cross beakes *sadly I lost one to a predator) but the other one is doing fine. Her beak looks like my Cocos beak.
