    Default Should I kill it?

    This is the first time I have EVER seen this in a hatchling. It appears to be severedeformity in it's jaw. At first it wasn't this bad, it just got worse since day 1.







    Btw i found another dead hatchling today also. Been some rough times around here

    Whoa, it was born that way? I've never seen one like that before. I'm so sorry! Unfortunately, I think it's best to humanely euthanize that one. With a deformity like that, it will never be able to eat properly or live a normal life. Better to end it's suffering now than later. (In my opinion.) Once again... I'm so sorry.

    I'm so sorry for your loss. At least he isn't suffering anymore.
