    I twist my roosters' spurs off. It doesn't break them completely, just removes the sheath. Everyone gets nails clipped and filed as needed (hens and roos)....if my daughter had her way, they'd have polish too!

    Interesting. I never thought of that. I'll have to try it. [​IMG]

    I use a chargable dremel tool from WAL $20. with a sander disk, which is basicly what the pedipaws is. They use it in Vet offices too.

    Quote:That sounds like a good option, the pedi-paw thing seems overpriced, but I wanted something simple to use w/o a cord. Thanks

    I saw a commercial for the pet-icure one on tv. I was thinking about buying it too.

    You can get cordless dremel tools.

    I would get one of those over the pedipaws. I see no indication that you can change the rotating filing drum on the pedipaws, and it looks like cheap junk!
