    Just thought I would post some pics of my deformed birds. I see a lot of bad things at my day job so I don't have the heart to cull unless there is suffering involved. If my wife and I can make arrangements to care for the chickens we do what it takes.

    Curious how the cross beak eats and have you had it since it was a chick? I've got a month old chick that has this too, I have to hand feed her and she's small compared to other chicks. I'm in your camp about culling, only if the bird appears to be suffering.
