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!
