I have 36 chickens, one roo. They free range in my fenced in pasture. My roo, Elvis, is a bit agressive towards myself and my family. Out in the pasture, there's enough room for all of us to "get along". My concern is that we live in VT where the winter drives everyone into the barn. We will be in close quarters with the roo and I am getting a bit nervous about it. Elvis has long spurs and I want to cut them down, but I don't know if they are like the nails, and will bleed if cut too short? Any advice will be appreciated.
