I did it on a dead rooster and it worked great (but it looked like it would be painful if he was alive). Soft/raw spur underneath.
Yes, if they are long enough you can twist them right off with your hands. If they are shorter, you may need a pliers to get a grip. I haven't done any in years, but when I was a kid, I seem to remember them bleeding a little, but not too bad. There is a 3/8'' or so soft base underneath. Just make sure to twist them off and not break them off. I can see where that would get real bloody!
