Extreme Curved Beak (4 messages)

I have a 4 week old Araucana who has developed a hooked upper beak. Her lower beak is too small for her upper, making it very hard for her to eat. The food gets stuck in the hook, out of reach of her lower beak. She's frantically trying to eat, but not making much headway.
A day or two ago she developed a swollen area or growth the size of a pea beneath her lower beak.

What should I do?

we had one like this too - the children named her curved beak-- she had an extremely curved beak - was always smaller - but did very well for a long time ( a couple years until the pig got her) it was the nicest chicken too

I would suggest trimming a little of her top beak back with pet nail clippers.{But not to much as beaks have blood vessels in them. use styptic powder to stop bleeding.} I suggest you look on the forums under "Long curved beak". I don't know what that lump under her beak is though. I would see a vet. I hope this helps. She is very pretty:]
