No, we don’t recommend taking your fine feathered friends to go get a mani-pedi, but we did get the nail trimming question a few times. Here are some of the actual conversations from the event that we hope will help you answer your chicken questions.

Q: How short should I trim my chickens toe nails? Is it the same rule like trimming dogs nails?

A: Pretty much like trimming dogs. Don’t hit the quick but enough so that they don’t start turning.

Q: I heard a vet can remove the back claws on a rooster, is this common practice?

A: Yes, this is common practice. The back claws are called spurs.
