    Today I noticed while messing with my Pheonix roo, that he has two Spurs growing out of one leg. One is regular size, and the second is smaller, very sharp, and curving upward. Should this bother him?? My biggest concern is if it curn=ves back into his leg. Should I trim it?

    Some breeds grow multiple spurs, check out the Sumatra photo's on Feathersite- some of those boys have 4 spurs on each leg![​IMG]

    I've also seen roosters that have their legs cut up by their spurs so I bet you will have to trim it eventually, especially if it keeps growing that way.
