Its not very severe right now but he does have a crossed beak as they are not aligned like the rest of the chicks. He is a little smaller than the others but is eating fine. I just noticed this yesterday and I remember threads about the crossed beak living almost normal lives. He is almost a month and I can't believe that my first 4 chicks, one of them has this. I didnt think it was very common. I understand I can shave it but is there anyway to help with this if you find it young? I refuse to put him down as he is a sweetheart and I did notice he couldnt chirp until a few days ago. It was wierd. I am just paranoid and these 4 chicks had better make it.
