    :)Hello everyone...I have 26 baby chicks, mixed varieties. I noticed yesterday that one has a "crooked beak". Boo Hoo. I did some reading on this forum, and there are differing opinions on what to do...Other than that, all are well. But I get stressed worrying if I am doing the right things! They seem happy to me...I spend a few times a day playing with them so they will be fairly tame. All my friends here think I am NUTS. [​IMG]

    Some folks have had success with them, the big thing is that they can't feed like the others can. Maybe making special mix that she can get to would help. I guess it also depends on how bad it is? Some folks have trimmed the beaks to help but I know nothing on how to do that.
