Nail clipping

Recommended Posts

I read a thread on here about ex batts and whether they've had their wings and nails clipped. My hens aren't ex batts and have had their wings done but do I need to do anything about their nails? They get quite a lot of time free in the garden,to scratch around. Will that keep the length down enough? One of my hens is a Maran Coucou with feathery legs,who doesn't do very much scratching. She doesn't seem bothered by her nails but I can't help but think they look a little long. (I'm new to all this and only have the other two to compare her with) Maybe they just appear longer as she's a big 'ol girl! Any advice will be greatly appreciated,thanks x
