    Hi, I have 3 week old chicks and one has grown this incredibly hooked beak like a hawk. I've been feeding them by hand but this one always bites me, I don't know if on purpose or just that it's beak makes it do that by accident. Is this common? Should I get rid of it if it bites? ( I have 5 month old twins.)
