    Good Afternoon,

    I do not believe this is an emergency but i was looking for some feedback. We have an Easter Egger, noticed her upper beak is some what curved. I was hoping that she would grind it down over time and her beak shape would return to normal. However at 11 weeks i have not seen much improvement. She seems to be eating and drinking just fine so at this point i plan on doing nothing. If it is recommended by a poster that i do need to do something please let me know what it is.

    Thank you in advance for your time in responding.

    Trim the lower beak with a pair of dog toenail clippers. Just 1/8" a few times a week.
