    Kind of young yet to say for sure. The white is a maybe.

    That last one looks like you may need to trim it's beak back a bit. It looks like it has a bit of an "overbite", it may just be the picture.

    That's Piggy. Her beak seems a bit curved at the end. Is it necessary to trim it or is it cosmetic? She seems to eat fine, just has a slimmer beak.

    The California White is my daughter's bird. I'm worried she is a he, but also consoled that leghorn x's tend to be tall, slim and have pronounced combs... on to another week of worry I guess haha

    If she is eating fine they you can leave it. Just keep an eye on her. With quail I use a nail clipper to take the overgrown part off. Don't know it that would work with a chicken or if you have to use something like a dremel.
