How to keep my chicken’s nails and beak trimmed naturally?

Chickens will naturally keep their top beak and toe nails short if you provide them with the correct foraging areas. If they can forage through gravel and pebbles by doing this their nails will naturally stay trimmed as the act of foraging files the nails on this kind of surface, this also works well for patios or concreted areas. Beaks file in much the same way, you can provide beak stones in your run, simply find some large stones or a paving slab and your hen will use this to file her top beak on. If they do get too long you can trim both with clippers.
