This is a phoenix chick about 7 weeks old with a beak problem. I bought this as an ornimental bird and didnt plan on breeding them so the problem never seemed like a big deal but now I think he is having a problem eating. What do you people think. on the on hand I do need room because my chickens will be a bit crowded once they get grown and I dont want the poor thing to starve. On the other hand, perhaps he is eating ok enouph to survive. He is very submisive to all the other chickens and knows his place in the pecking order. I know that knowone wants to tell me to kill my chicken so just tell me what you would do.
