(That title was a poor attempt at a long slow southern farmer’s drawl)
Anyway, I’ve had chickens for quite a number of years now and this is the first time this particular issue has come up!
Poor Kowalski! I don’t even know how the poor guy ate with that over grown beak! With his ‘hairdo’ I didn’t see this going on until recently.
I knew that other bird breeds need beak trims sometimes but none of the other chickens have ever had this problem.
So I googled (or as DaMaMa would say “goggled”) trimming a chickens beak and got the info I needed. Just like trimming a toenail it said.
So I borrowed the crazy dog lady’s dog nail trimmers (cuz cat trimmers seemed to small for the job), collected Mr. K and prepared myself for a battle roy-al!
Well let me tell you, it was a TOTAL…
… non-event. The boy sat as still as a statue and never even squawked! Such an angel he is!
So here’s how he looks now…
No blood was involved for either of us so I pronounce the procedure a resounding success!
He’s so much handsomer now after his nose job don’tcha think?
