    Well lots of hatcheries sell pullets that have had their beaks trimmed. I don't think there's a disease that causes anything like it. You just now noticed after a week? Were their beaks normal before now?

    I don't know if they were or not but they seem to eat and drink fine there not having a problem with it . I just did not see it when I brought them home.
