Well, that is the nickname given to our Araucana (I think she' an EE) with a scissor beak. I've read several posts on here about successes and failures with this issue and was hoping to get some helpful hints from those that have had success. Culling her IS NOT an option unless she truly appears to be suffering. She is the friendliest little chick we're raising by far. Every time I reach down to get a chick or the feeder out of the brood pen, she jumps onto the back of my hand to greet me. I raise her up out of the pen to eye level and see that little crooked face looking back at me. It's almost like in her short little life she's already come to the understanding that she needs me. I've tried hand feeding her, but she hasn't shown interest yet. She's half the size of the other four Araucanas we're raising and she spends a lot of her time at the feeder vigorously trying to eat. She has a severe case of it, in fact the bottom part of her beak is at almost a 90 degree angle from the top part. Are there certain high calorie foods I need to try to give her? She's not quite 9 weeks and is very alert and active. Any information is greatly appreciated!
