My rooster has 3-4 inch long spurs and they are hindering his ability to get around and keep up with the hens. I'm scared he wouldn't be able to get away in case any predators came around. They are all free range but our farm is fenced. I asked the vet to cut them off and he said they would just grow back. Rooster is a big Banty mix, gentle and easy to handle. I have looked online and everywhere it just says these can be cut off but nowhere was I able to find photos of it being done. I'd attempt it myself but without proper instructions I am scared of hurting or killing him.
