    I have this crooked beak that I got from a family member, he was going to cull it at a young age but I decided to take it to see if it would make it, about 8 months old now and doing fine. I have been told that its an easter egger roo but not sure, im sure its a roo because he is a spunky lil guy and is constantly fighting to show off for the hens lol

    Oh poor guy, my rooster Crooky isn't half as bad as him, but he has a crooked beak as well. I have found they can do pretty well, but sometimes it is genetic so you may not want to hatch any eggs.

    Awww...poor guy. I hatched out a little crooked beak olive-egger hen. She did ok, even play-fought with the other chickens, but she passed away at about 3 months old. I think she wasn't getting enough water, and the heat got to her.

    He's a handsome one too! Looks like his top beak could use a trimming.

    i have one little baby about 5 weeks old i noticed he had a crooked beak.... not that bad but he was the only serviver of my clutch out of 6 eggs he was the only one (my hen decided she was going to leave the eggs 3 days before they hatched. they were ice cold when i found them thought i was not going to have him. but hes doing great!!)

    I had to cull a cross-beaked Wyandotte today. I'd watched her closely since the crossed-beak began to show, and until a few days a go she was thriving. In fact, pretty near the queen bee in the coop, perhaps because her pecks pinched, giving her an advantage. For whatever reason, I found her down early last evening. Got her to her feet and she demonstrated an odd way of drinking, and then got her over to the feeder to fill up.

    All that seemed to perk her up some but, by this morning, the others had pecked at her pretty badly in the night.

    I would say that he's an ee, very pretty. He does need his break trimmed, I have used the peddi paw dog or cat trimmer on my crooked beak and it works great. Mine is almost 1 1/2 years old. Good luck with him.
