    Quote:Of course they are tender, do you realize all the nerves and blood vessels that feed into the spur that you are twisting on? It would be like pulling out your toenails with plyers...ouch!!!! Much better to use the dremmel or a small saw and saw them out away from the leg...

    that is a better way, but when you file the spur down it gets really hot and uncomfortable for the chickens, and then the spurs grow back faster, its easier to pull them off so you dont have to shave the spur every other week, we just take pliers and twist them off. i recommend using pliers if your in 4-H
