If you’ve ever been hen pecked, then you know that beaks are sharp. For the safety of their bird flocks, our farmers practice a very minimal form of beak trimming. The Certified Humane program has a strict policy on beak trimming. According to their guidelines, only the tip of the beak is trimmed—the sharp hook at the end—and only trained professional may do the trimming on hens 10 days or younger. When hens mature, the only sign is a rounded top edge instead of a sharp hook. The Certified Humane program ensures that hens can still engage in all their natural behaviors: eating, drinking, and pecking normally.
