Roo's Spurs Are Thin on Ends?
Featured Stories on BackYard Chickens
That's normal. As they age the spurs get sharper and to a point.
Be very careful when feeding chickens rooster in there too. My wife an RN had been feeding bread to these chickens for about 5 months and one day she was all most finished one of the roosters jumped up and spurred her on leg. Took her to ER and all the Doctors wanted to come see but they did take care of her. 5 switches and 4 staples just to close her wound and they did cut off a 1/4 piece hanging. So no matter how friendly roosters are do not trust them
Cut spurs off at least 1/2 way
