Im kidding, I wouldnt remove the talons, but can you safely cut duck claws? My male donald doesnt care if hes picked up. He just goes limp. My female though.....woah, she is a wild B**ch when being handled. Claws go a'flayling. I took both of them to the bathtub today for the first time (3 weeks old) and she cut up my arm and hand something awful. Can you cut them with nail clippers, just to prevent attempted murder by duck?
