Xena was hatched on a farm and rescued just in the nick of time by a vet who happened to be there checking on another animal. Because of Xena's severe crossed beak, she had been put in a plastic bag to suffocate. A cross beak is usually from a vitamin deficiency in the egg, or an injury sustained before hatching. We make sure Xena has access to crumbled feed (versus pellets) at all times, and chop up her salads extra fine to make sure she maintains a healthy weight.
