One of our 6 week old chicks has a defective beak. The bottom part of the beak is shifted off to the left, that is, when she closes her beak, the top & bottom do not line up together. This doesn't seem to have any effect on her eating & drinking & she seems to be growing fine. Still, is this anything to worry about? Is it a common "defect" in chickens?
