caring for roosters

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

I now have a new young rooster, in addition to the older Americana, who is getting aggressive. I've been advised to trim his spurs and studied how to do it. However I fail  to find whether roosters have just one spur on each foot, or if each  toe has a spur??

Thanks for the help

type in "rooster spurs"  on backyard chicken search, you will find some helpful threads.

One spur at what looks to be ankle on each leg.  Usually bird is 18 months or more before such proceedure warranted.

Make every effort to understand your chicken's biology and the environment that supports it.
