    Does anyone know of a mobile chicken/poultry vet in the Gainesville, Florida area that I can call to come and trim my flock's nails?

    I have a local vet that I can take my chickens to, but I have 7 chickens and that is a bit much to deal with. Ugh! I'd rather have a mobile vet come to my house and do this.

    I called my local vet and the mobile vet they recommended does not deal with chickens (just large animals). He doesn't know of anyone that does this in the area. I am sure that someone does.

    I looked online and found this you could try and call, it does not say chickens but there are pictures a dog, lion cub and some parrots so hopefully chances are good.

    I tried calling them and it went directly to VM, then said their mailbox was full. Uh oh!

    Thanks for trying what eggs. [​IMG] I'll probably try emailing them too.

    Anyone else?

    I have a friend who trims her own chickens' nails. She has a special clipper.
