    I have 3 barred Plymouth rocks and they eat anything. as far as i know, they can eat anything. and you can clip baby chicks nails, only the tip, if you cut the whole thing, then it cannot scratch.

    You can cut their nails with a dog nail clipper but I have used a dremmel on some before. I feel safer using the dremmel personally.
