    One of BO's beak seems really long (See 1st pic) Compared to pic 2 & 3. They will be 3 wks Tuesday. Also she has a sister that is starting to look more like a cockerel? I'm really hoping not because if she/he is I'll have to get rid of her/him (also see 2,3,&4[​IMG]
    )

    Beak size doesn't have anything to do with gender. They are to young to sex, I would post again in another 3 weeks.

    Sorry I meant to say is it normal for the beak to be that long, or do I need to file it down. [​IMG] Sorry about that.

    Oh, sorry [​IMG]. I don't think you need to file it down.
