My neighbor has a handsome 14 month old RIR rooster who is gentle toward his 10 RIR girls and human mom and daughter. He is viscious toward his human dad and son and attacks mercilessly whenever either human male vetures near the flock when they free-range or they enter the coop to collect eggs.
Any suggestions on how to humanely remove the spurs?
"Red" is much loved by the family (and they shed tears at the prospect of re-homing him or letting me broil him) but they just can't risk the two children getting hurt by his typical rooster behavior.
