My roosters spurs are getting awfully long and sharp. I've read that I can twist the outer shell off, but I'm too scared I will hurt him. I tried screwing on wire nuts, it worked for a bit, but then they fell off and I'm afraid one of the critters will eat them. What about using tire valve caps (you know the black rubber caps you put on the stem where you put the air in your tire) and super glued them to the spurs. Or even super gluing wire nuts on his spur?? Does this sound like a bad idea...using super glue?? The wire nuts worked great until they fell off... I got to do something. I pick him up and he moves at all (not even being mean, just shifting his weight) and I get all scratched up!!
