    I brought home a new sex-link today, shes probably only a few weeks old.

    She's eating and drinking fine, and otherwise looks/acts fine, but she sneezes every so often (and *might* have diarrhea, I haven't determined if its her or the other hens yet). One nostril was blocked with junk (possible just dirt/muck from where I got her) and we've cleaned that away. I've quarantened her from the other hens for now because I'm not very familiar with chicken diseases and I don't want her to pass it on to any of my other healthy hens.

    Not as worrying, but her beak is also a bit ... crooked (as in the top and bottom part dont match up).

    What would be the best way to look after her? Should I be concerned about her beak too?
