    Re: nose markings

    I used to clip the nostril cover with a small finger nail clipper... it was a pain in the arse & took 2 cuts... Bill McNatt told me how he does it & it works great. All ya have to do is get an extra toe punch & grind it down... leave just enough " meat " around the hole so you don't ruin it... when done, just slip the part with the hole it it up the chicks nose & clip... that easy. The left one is for the nose...

    Man, I'm glad you posted this Slipspur, I marked the nose before using small, cuticle scissors and it's a pain to do, haven't done it since! Now I going to try again with your method, thanks!

    Re: nose markings

    I use this. It's for manicuring nails/cuticles. Works well. Just get one side under the skin of the nose, and snip.

    I don't like marking mine in the nose if I don't have to but I mostly go with the toe punch and when I've used up all the ways to mark them by toe punch I then use the same marks but just cut a v out of the webbing and if I need more marks I mix toe punches with v cuts I normally don't breed enough to get that far into it tho

    Get the "Soligen" brand cuticle remover from Germany. No rust and no need constant sharpening. It will last you a lifetime.

    Re: nose markings

    Can the nostril cutting be done to adult fowl ? I have no idea......never done this to chicks either.

    laguardia it's very easy on adult fowl.

    I seldom nose mark, mostly because it's such a chore lol.

    nose markings normally done when chicks using a small finger nail clipper slide under clip then turn and clip off

    [/QUOTE I ground my toe punches both ways like the one on the left and it worked well if the punch punched a clean hole. A lot of them won't cut cleanly all the way around the hole.
