    She is 7 days old today (photo was just taken). We noticed a slight misalignment a couple days ago. I've read a lot of varying opinions on the forum so far. I'm curious how she compares to others with crossed beak at this age. Has anyone had luck with the vitamins? Or can she live years with trimming? Or is she not that bad?

    We really don't want to cull but nor would we want her to suffer she is eating fine right now and is the same size as her 3 companions.

    Thanks for all the help - this forum has been amazing!

    Thanks for the reply sunflour! That's pretty much what we are thinking. I'll see how she does over the next few weeks! She still appears healthy in all ways minus the obvious.
