I've seen similar deformities in both a western painted & a RES.
Both of them had been fed nothing but pellet diet all their lives so when I saw this photo it made me wonder if too much of the pellet diet is the problem.
Please do post updates, it would be interesting to know if diet changes fix this problem.
