    I'm not sure how to reply without sounding rude because polish on animals really bugs me but I'd just keep an eye on it. It probably didn't get enough to do any harm. [​IMG] If you feel that your chick must have polish there is a polish made for dogs.

    I'm sure you're little chick will be alright though.

    Was your chick okay? We read that nail polish was a good way to tag cockrells from pullets. When we went to paint ones nails today, he got a big mouth full of it by accident. Would love to know if yours is okay!

    Yep he was fine, i washed out his mouth with an eye dropper and he had a blue beak for a while but aside from that, it didnt harm him at all
