Need advice on trimming toenails in 2 of my hens. One has curved outer toes and cannot wear it down and other stays too broody to keep her manicure in shape. My books tell me to trim only 1/4 inch at a time…and I have styptic powder but don't think I will need it just tipping off the end. Questions: 1 - what do y'all use..? dog nail clipper for small to med dogs? 2- when is the best time to cause the least stress - anytime or off the roost at nite? I can handle both gals ,but one is a skittish girl. Don't want to stress her out….'cause she lays eggs nearly every day.
