    Long story short I hatched some serama eggs from brother/sister mating. I have had chicks before that don't survive but look fine, but this time 2 of them had slightly offset beaks, they didnt meet up perfectly. One never got out of the shell, the other one seems good for now but has the offset beak and a bulging eye which is drying out cause I'm guessing she cannot blink. Has anyone ever had this happen? It freaked me out at first cause chicks are supposed to be cute, this one looks freaky. But I'm getting used to it, just wondering if she may survive? I would hate to cull, but don't want her to suffer either. Help?!?
