    I've just noticed that one of my female quails has really long nails
    should I cut them and do I need to give them something to scratch to keep their nails short
    cheers.

    Hi, yes cutting your hens nails is probably a good idea because when they get too long sometimes the nail can snap and bleeds quite badly so it's best to cut them. As for giving them stuff to scratch I did give mine sand paper for birds for quite a while near the food but they never really used it.
