I've only come across this twice. The first bird, I bought from a feed store, I noticed it was ever so slightly off and I thought maybe she wouldn't be given a chance if I didn't snatch her up. She lived 8 weeks, I finally decided it was time to go....she spent her entire day trying to eat. I did my best, that was all I could do for her. (RIP Penelope) My Silkie hen has hatched out some eggs from my flock recently. I have an Ameraucana Silkie x in there and she's now two weeks old....just two days ago, we noticed her beak is slightly crooked as well. I've heard it's a genetic issue that appears in Ameraucanas often. Penelope was only a day or so old when I found her. This new chick is two weeks old...I'm hoping it has a higher chance of survival, since the issue appeared later on. It was one of the last hatched and it is the biggest one. Both chicks were/are a grey with buff overlay. Is it something with this color? Does anyone have any information on this? Thanks for any help in advance. If you have any questions for me, I'd be more than happy to try to answer them.
