I've never removed a spur before, and am cautious against trying it (I really don't want to hurt my Roo without a good reason). As it happens, he is quite gentle. We always keep an eye on him (he is a rooster, after all), but for a year now he has been great (we received him as an adult). Throughout this time I've never removed his spur. Am I wrong to let it go? One looks like it fell off on its own, but the other is really long. I WILL remove the spur if he acts aggressive or if it is cruel NOT to do so. Advice from those with more knowledge would be appreciated.
