    Hi i recently hatched some chickens and noticed that their nails are getting long. I was just going to ask if you are supposed to clip there nails. Oh and if you do have to does any one have a good youtube video or a website that shows me how.
    Thanks for any of your replies.

    No need to clip nails when they are chicks.
