    I recently bought 4 baby chicks for myself and my children. The kids are wanting to name their chicks but It's really hard to tell them apart right now and I suggested we wait until they were older. I was wondering if putting a bit of nail polish on one of each of their claws would be harmful.

    lol I was just talking with my daughter about painting our chicks nails today! We have something called piggy paint which is non toxic safe for kids to eat nail polish. But then the kids started acting up and bed time came early so no polish
