    I have 3 bantam sultan chicks. 2 have a smooth beak, one has an odd round growth? Should I be concerned?

    I am not seeing anything that is wrong, what are you referring to?

    the top pic, the beak is smooth, and in the bottom pic there is a divet. Both chicks are the same age, and the second chick has always had a bit of a divet, it's just more pronounced now.

    Make sure your feed isn't too old, sometimes old feed can cause rickets that can cause some beak deformities. I don't think it's anything to be worried about.
