    BROKEN SPUR!🐓

    I have a rooster with a broken spur. It's about 3 inches long. It's broken where it comes out of the leg. I washed it with antibac soap and applied antibac ointment and wrapped it. He hopes on one leg to walk. He eats and drinks and takes his girls out still. What should I do?
