ok so lately things have not been going well on my little farm. I got some chickens in a trade and had to deal with a lot of sickness and mites but when I think I have everything covered something new happens... I have 6 cochin chicks that I hatched in the incubator. All 6 have been completely healthy and happy since may 7th. So today I go out to feed my little feather darlings and noticed that all but one of them have black on there beaks. I don't know if I should worry I am still a little paranoid after all the other sickness we have had lately. they still act normal flying eating drinking.. Can someone please tell me I am just being paranoid. I feel like all I do lately is post that another one of my chickens is not well.

Are you sure it just came? One of my chicks has a completely black beak, and it wasn't at first. I think it should be fine, none of my hens have yellow beaks.
