One of the silkie chicks that I hatched has developed a cross beak. I just notices it yesterday at 11 days old. It seems pretty minor to me and it is the bigger of the 2 by far so it is eating just fine at this point. Just curious to see what others looked like at 2 weeks and how bad they became as the chick grew. Here are some pics of mine.

I don't think I can help, but, if you do a search for cross-beak, I think there are a lot of chickens that have lived comfortably with it.

I have searched and looked at pics but they all look so much worse than this chick. I am wondering how bad I can expect it to get. I do notice it getting slightly worse each day. Hoping it won't get as bad as the pics I've seen. I am also hoping that it is a she so that she can at least be a broody for me, if it's a roo I am going to have to rehome. I had a dream last night that the tiny little peep was crowing
