Is it ok to clip a chickens claws? One of my chickens loves crawling all over anyone she meets and we've all got more than a few scratches from her trying to clamber on top of us, so I was wondering if there's a way to reduce that. If not, I guess love comes at a cost :)

Unless you buff the clipped claws, they could still be scratchy. I have some flat landscape blocks in my run so that they can file down their nails when scratching around.
If I were to clip, I might find a pair of smaller clippers that you can use on guinea pigs and such. As the ones I use for my dogs, would be too big and I would be afraid of taking off a toe. :sick
