My cockerel is having trouble walking because his spurs are too long. He keeps tripping over them and gets horribly embarrassed. I think he's starting to get depressed about it.
I'm thinking to trim the spurs but want to do this in a way that is gentle on the humans and the roo. Are spurs like horns in that they have a live part inside? What if I cut them back a quarter inch every few weeks until they are down to two inches long - and he can walk properly again? How would I go about cutting them?
