One of my new chicks has a bit of an underbite. His lower beak is a bit longer than the top. Is this going to cause any problems? I guess he just shouldnt breed, right? thanks!

If you take an emory board and work it until it meets up with the upper beak, they should keep eachother down... but I think you're right, he shouldnt' be passing on those genes...

Any pics?
