    I just got two new chickens today. I noticed when I got them home that one has a beak that's short on top and longer on the bottom. At first, I wondered if her beak had been clipped and then, in trying to find out info, I found out about cross beak....I am wondering if anyone can tell me how to tell the difference! Thanks!
