    Quote:I was told he was 3 years old. The picture isn't showing all of the spurs!!
     
  5. holy cow!!!!!!!! [​IMG] I would get those broken off/cut whatever it is called ASAP!!!!!!!


    It also looks like his toenails are out of control as well? Was he allowed to roam on the ground? or was he perch kept?

    Quote:He passed away [​IMG] We cut them to about half a inch. We also cut his toe nails. This picture was when we first got him.

    Quote:Yes they are! The people I bought them from must have never trimed them. I don't know what he died from. He seemed to get more tired everyday until he died. Poor rooster. He was very sweet. [​IMG]
