One of my chicks has one each foot two nails missing. Its the two facing each other on the inside(for my best description) Will this be any problem in roosting , walking or scrating for food later? the toes itself are fully formed, just the claw/nail part is not there. So far it is eating just fine and walking so far not a issue either, but i just dont know about the future. They will only used for ornamental/ egg purposes, not for breeding.

It should be fine. A lot of adult chickens will actually loose their claws. They can still roost.

Good luck

My little sultan is missing a couple as well - one of them is the middle one!
I would be curious to see how those scratch marks look... do chickens get callouses on their "fingers"?
