    Today I went outside and saw LOTS of blood everywhere and immediately started looking for a body or something in the yard..thinking there was some sort of night attack. But nothing was to be found. [​IMG]

    My 6y/o daughter noticed that the back of my oldest roo's foot was bloody, so I looked and sure enough, his spur was dangling. I took it off. It is not bleeding anymore and he was "dancing" just fine, but will it ever grow back? He only had 1 to begin with and now his manhood is gone...lol!

    We have it in our window sill now....only chicken people would understand!

    Good to hear it's quit bleeding, and yes it will grow back no problem.

    Ok good! He is my favorite and I don't want anything to happen to him!

    It was a good 2 inch spur!
