I was wondering if it is possible to cut/trim a roosters spurs. They have gotten so long and they are tearing up the poor girls. He is the only rooster that is free ranging with about 15 hens. I have one other rooster but he is in a pen with his girls and does not free range. The rooster who's name is Howard is a good rooster but he can be rough on the girls. This is from previous competition with another rooster that we did get rid of.
Thought if his spurs were trimmed/cut then he wouldn't hurt the girls as much. He is a big boy, too. If you can trim them how would you go about it?
