I was just wondering if anyone actally trims their chickens beaks when they get long. I don't mean cutting the top beak back to where it will never grow out again, just trimming the tip back. I have a couple of chickens that need a trim quite often. I use the dog nail clippers to do the job. I was wondering if long beaks hinder them while trying to eat. It also looks like they could do a lot more damage to another bird with that dagger hanging off their face. Why do some birds need a trim and others never do? DO they actually need a trim or am I just being overly sensitive to their looks?
