    I don't know if this will help anyone but I have a 2-3 week old amaracauna that has a pretty severe case of scissor beak. She's the sweetest so I didn't even think of culling her. She drinks water fine but she had a hard time getting food in her mouth and people say to feed separately and soften feed but that's all just a big pain so I decided to put the chick feed in the blender. Small amounts at a time for a couple of seconds and no more and put it in the chick feeder. That way they could all eat it and it has worked quite well! :)

    Since this was posted in the exhibition thread i will give you my response although its clear you dont like the idea. This bird should be culled. If you are seriously breeding towards the standard there is absolutely no reason to keep this bird around. You absolutely do not want it passing this trait down to its offspring. If you dont breed towards the standard then maybe this should have been posted somewhere else. Harsh? Maybe but its the honest reality. Good luck
