    Got an answer on the sussex thread! Apparently this is fine. Y'all know that SS get more white with every molt, but they said a roo that does this produces chicks with too much white. So he's still good for breeding!

    So who's got a favorite method for trimming spurs?

    Just wondering why do people remove the spurs. Would it be ok to keep them in case of a predictor attack?

    They can get too long and injure the hens or make the roo walk funny.
