should my a bit over one week old chicks be getting tails feathers? i saw a picture of a 3 week old buff orpington and it looked less featherd then my supposedly one weekers? also, do i need to trim their beaks already? there is translucent growth curving down over the bottom part of the beak. i read that i can file it with a nail file but i feel like if i do that i would have to hold the chicks head so tight i might pop it like a grape. a friend suggested some sort of calcium stone that you give to other pet birds (they peck at it and it wears the beak down) but i'm wary of the chicks getting too much calcium while pecking at the stone.
