    Have a Red Sex-Link hen with toe nails at least 1/4 - 1/2 inch longer that those of other hens. Should I trim them? (Assuming I can catch her)

    Yes it is best to keep them trimmed. Dog toe nail clippers seem to work the best. Look for the blood line in the nail and do not trim past it or they will bleed.
