    I have four baby rock chicks and this one in particular came to me with this strange bump on her beak. I can't figure out what it is if anyone else has experienced this I'd love your advice on what to do! Thank you in advance![​IMG]

    That is the egg beak which helps them pip and zip while hatching. It will disappear shortly. Its presence indicates that this is the youngest of your chicks since the others have already lost theirs.
