    I have a NN roo with a beak that the bottom sticks out further than the top does. I have another roo that is limping and the foot seems a little swelled, but nothing else noticeably wrong. Any thoughts?

    Can you post pictures? The one limping might have bumblefoot, but a pic would be helpful.

    You may want to avoid breeding the roo with the crooked beak. Is he eating ok? Can you trim the beak so that if looks more like it should?
