    Her beak is so severe that she drools on herself as you can see in the picture. I was hoping that there would be some ideas on how to save her. She is so sweet and the last thing I want to do is to put her down. She can eat just as fine as the other birds although it does take her a little longer to finish and she can drink water okay. I have a dremel tool in the mail that was supposed to be here today to try and shave it down but i'm not sure it will work because it is her jaw that is crooked not her beak. Any ideas on how to save her?

    This last picture is blurry but it shows how crooked her beak is.

    Looks like Crossbeak. I have only heard of it and read about it. You might want to look into it. I have seen pictures of adult birds with it.
