Just got a new silkie whose nails are long to the point where the toes are twisting. Her feet are otherwise in great shape, so I did some careful clipping and will possibly engage the Pedi-Paws if she will tolerate it. My questions are these: 1. I cut very conservatively, only enough to reduce the torsion problem but not fully correct it. She has white nails with horn streaking near the foot and I was having a very hard time discerning where the quick might be. Seeking guidance. 2. Being that silkies don't have the benefit of scratching in the dirt all the time, what strategies exist for providing them abrasive surfaces? I was thinking that possibly turning ceramic tiles on to their backs as a underlayment for the bedding would be of benefit. 3. As well, what do you provide to a house chicken to help them keep their beaks in trim? Thanks in Advance!
