I have watched enough videos and read enough here to know how to do it. I don't really have a place to keep him separated from the girls,though. If I apply redKote or something of that nature to the fresh spur, do you all think he'll be ok back in with the girls? this is a GREAT rooster, he's about 4 yrs old, and about a year ago some hens (that are gone now, but so is the coon that got them) pecked him almost to death. He lost most of his feathers and I swear I thought he was going to die. I did keep him in a small ish dog kennel for a few weeks, medicated - and integrated him back in and he's back in his full glory. I don't want to go through THAT again. Thanks all!
