Went home at lunch to find that one of my 2 week old SLW chicks got her head trapped under a waterer (mason jar type) that her sisters managed to knock over. She seems alert and breathing well, but her beak is misalligned now. Can anything be done to help her or just wait and see if she can eat / drink on her own?

Thanks Ya'll! I was able to gently massage the sides of her beak last night and get her beak back to the normal position. She was very tolerant. After making her happy little 'coo' at me, I returned her to her sisters. She went immediately to the waterer and got a drink, followed by a snack of crumbles! Is it possible for them to dislocate their beak? She is her happy, sassy self this morning.
