Do I need to do anything to my chickens nails? Do they need to be cliped? or do I just need to put something in there for them to scratch?

I would think that just them being out and scratching around would keep the nails short enough as to not need clipped.

I wouldn't want to try to hold an unruly chicken through a nail clipping!

You do want to clip them if you are going to bring them to a show. You really dont want the judge mangled when he or she handles them
