can i paint my chickens nails without them pecking at it?
Probably not. Chickens are attracted to colors and just like to peck.
If you want to try it, skip the red/pink/orange colors and go for a blue, green or maybe some dark, dark color that looks brownish. Not as fun, I know.
post pics and let us know how it goes
They constantly peck my toes when I have them painted... So I'd assume they would all peck each other's feet. That could get a little rough.
No, no and just plain no........
Purely out of curiosity and no judgement on my part but why would you want to paint their nails?
I would probably go with No also, I agree that they would try and peck it off their own nails and each others and I am pretty sure that it would not be very healthy if they ate it, possibly toxic.
haha, me and a friend did it a while ago with her chickens. we painted bright pink and red nail polish on the hens, but i was never told how they reacted to it afterwards. i though it would be fun and look cool on my chickens! plus, i would have some glamour hens!
I think cosmetics are a bit to much for chickens. I don't think chickens would enjoy human beauty treatments...
My guinea fowl peck each others nails in an affectionate manner. I always stop them because once my guinea hen chipped her nail, it was only chipped a tiny bit but it wouldn't stop bleeding. She had to have a bandage on her toe for a week. I wouldn't paint their nails as the human cosmetics can be toxic and also if they start pecking one anothers nails and manage to harm each other you will have a huge problem.
