    Hello Everyone, I just joined and have done my best to read the rules so I hope I'm posting this in the correct forum.

    I recently hatched out some Pekin Ducklings for the first time and have had several problems (Due to humidity control troubles during incubation.) One of the chicks seems to have a somewhat moderate over-bite. His bottom bill comes out past the top. The Ducklings are just over a week old and he seems to be alright, I was just wondering if this might cause problems later and if there is anything I can do or should give any kind of special care or attention for this issue. Any advise I would appreciate as, like I said, this is my first hatch. Thank you!
