Hello again! Can anyone teach me when I should cut chickens toe nails and how and with what???
If they need it, you can use dog nail clippers or a dremmel. If they are allowed to scratch on anything other than plastic or wire floor, they shouldn't need it.
If you do trim, be very careful. Their quick is closer to the end than with dogs.
Hi and welcome to BYC - you have some great advice already so I'll just say hello!
All the best
Welcome to BYC! I'm glad you joined us!
I hate doing nails. I used to have a dog grooming salon and that was the part I hated most. It's best to wrap them in a towel and then just have the one foot brought out at a time and take the smallest bit off. It helps make the 'quick' recede. Just try to do a bit every week. For banties like silkies, I think a small nail scissors will be easier to control.
ps It's good to have a stypic pencil handle to stop any bleeding. Even a dab of vasoline can work too.
