Yes, if they become too long and the birds start to have a problem walking on wire.

I notice the nails on some breeders can get long and have a nice hook on them that can accidentally stick new hatches and pull them from the nest, I think it happens to hatching eggs too, I think that is why you will sometimes see eggs in the middle of hatching, laying on the nest box floor. I clip my breeders nails.

Tony, I think that's what may have happened in-regards to my "Saved Squab" post. The hen definitely had some hooked nails.

Yeah John, I would see my share of new hatches or eggs scattered on the floor and wonder what happened. Then I figured out the nails seemed to be long in one or both the parents. Since I recognized this could happen and started clipping mails, it rarely happens now. Yay for me! lol

John don't be looking at this for your "saved squab " post again your birds are not a year old yet and i have had breeders for 3&4 years in individual cages that haven't needed nails trimmed, not saying they don't ever need them trimmed but not at under a year old i would look at old fart's #1751&1753 post. call me any time if you like Dennis
