    She's almost two months old I think and I just noticed this the other day. She seems to be able to eat fine because both top and bottom are crooked although the top is a little more crooked than the bottom. I have two others, a Delaware and Austrolorp and she picks on them and forages quite well so she doesn't seem weak or sick or anything. Is her beak going to get worse as she grows?

    [​IMG] It is difficult to tell from the pictures, but it almost looks as if the upper beak is cracked or broken at the base.

    Do these help? It looks like a scratch or crack. Could that be making her beak deformed? What can I do if that's the case?
