Can you get a clearer pic? I had one that was kind of the opposite...no eyes or upper beak...the poor little thing was lively though so I actually had to cull it.

Quote:I had one this morning no top beak. It was the most alive of all the chicks!! I had to cull as well. I felt horible cause it just stared at me an peeped away. How is it that the deformed one could be better off than the "normal" ones? It's weird!

Poor baby, it just wasn't meant to be. Just like some "siamese" twins that sometimes don't make it for the same reasons... babies fused at the wrong time or something....
