Trimming Chicken Nails, a Tutorial

Chicken Feet 5916Seems like a strange thing to have to do, but I have a hen that needs her nails trimmed occasionally. If let go, they begin to curl and effect her ability to walk correctly.  If you ever find yourself in a situation like this, clipping nails is rather simple and won’t be a big ordeal with a little know-how under your belt.  This article/tutorial is a bit of an over-kill, but it definitely gives you all the information you’ll ever need.
