    thanks farmer kitty ! ,, i was just thinking,, that if his whole spur comes off,,,, whats gonna keep his tether on his leg,, so having a "nub" would be alot better.
    and the dremil was my first thought,, then i started thinking bout him bleeding out on me,,hehehe,, is awful, i can do alot of things to my birds, even process em,, eat em ,, but would hate for 1 to die or go through alot of crap, just cause i was trying to help em.

    Thanks again [​IMG]

    wow hes' gorgeous too!!!

    We supposedly have a RIR here...everyone on BYC says he's a RIR however he's very tiny...like cochin size...and every RIR i see on here looks so big...i honestly think he's a RIR frizzle mix (a lot of his feathers are lightly kinked).

    i think i just saw a rir bantam when looking at pics bout mine. so you all may be right lol.

    Quote:Yes cut it off, your can also use a very fine tooth copping saw. little blood, use flour or blood stop.

    The potatoe was an old trick to make cocks look like stags, cheating on fights. It remove the outer spur. Better to trim, or you will be doing it again. Leave about 3/4 inch.

    Stags donot have sharp spurs

    mine dont "tie" they have like a leather strip, with a slice in them, and you pull it through itself, and just kinda stays there "kinda" loose,, but that 3/4 inch spur will be more then enough to ease my mind lol,, and your probably right,, it'll stay anyways,, im getting another tether tomorrow and let my rir roo out of "solitary" confinement tomorrow, he's been here 2 weeks stuck in a coop. but geesh i got alot of roo's lol.
    i figured he would sell by now,, but they see my other 2 rir roo's and think he's small,, poor young guy [​IMG]

    thanks rainbow,,, thats cool,,,,,,,but,, will that work for mine?,, he has like 4 inch spurs, and the 1 on the video had spurs just a LITTLE shorter then before the "twist,, if they got that much under them,, mine would end up with 3 inch spurs still,, and i think i need to get them WAY shorter then that,,, BUT for 1 thats not as bad off of mine, that would be GREAT!
    agains,, THANKS [​IMG]
