My rooster was being held by my younger sister when his left spur fell off. The spur was originally about 5 inches long. Under the old spur was an about 3 inch long, soft, new, bleeding spur. Is this supposed to happen? The rooster is now hanging in the yard acting completely normal. Will this happen to his other spur? Will the spur get infected because it is so soft? The old spur is hollow and blood free.
