    I have a wyandott that has a very hooked beak, my dd loves it, she thinks it looks cool, [​IMG] Is this anything I have to worry about? She eats and drinks fine, however I don't hand feed this one like the others, we have to make sure the food is very deep before offering it to her [​IMG] Thank you all.

    all you have to do is take one of the big clippers that people use and clip off the curved portion just to the blood line
    this will have to b done rgularly and yes she will need deep feed troughs
    so she can gulp it

    it is not much of a chore to do this
    just don't go beyond the blood line in the beak
    any questions email it to me
