I have read posts on this forum saying that using a dremel to grind back toenails on chooks and dogs works well. However I cannot see what type of attachment is best, I looked at the attachments my husband has and they all are listed for use on wood or ceramic, none state toenails :rofl: . If anyone could suggest which attachments are best I would be most grateful.

how about toe nail clippers for dogs [from pet store]
one slip of the dremel could result in some real damage

Yes you can use toenail clippers for most toenails but you cant use them on spurs, which is mostly what I use the dremmel for. I actually feel quite safe using it. I get a firm hold on the chook under my left arm and with my left hand hold the leg/foot I am working in on very firmly (you cant be tentative). The chook cant move and I can easily manipulate the dremmel in my right hand. I have never done any damage with it.

Better still, use a killing cone to hold your rooster and you can then use 2 hands, one for the dremel and one for the feet of the rooster.
