I have noticed lately that my older rooster Napoleon's spurs are extremely long and curving up and inward. I spoke to a friend today that owns chickens herself and asked what she thinks should be done. She had never trimmed any of hers but admitted that something should be done. The poor guy can't continue on like that and being my first flock of pet chickens I didn't have a clue. She held Napoleon while I tried to use dog nail clippers to trim at least the points down. This was to no avail as I discovered that these spurs are no way easy to clip. I ended up breaking the nail clippers. Decided to search the web to see what to do about this. I have watched a few Youtube videos and I don't have the heart to twist off the spur as viewed in a couple of the videos. This looks brutal and bloody. The closest video that I viewed that looked doable to me was using some sort of dremel like tools. The sound on my computer doesn't work so I viewed without hearing the advise that I'm sure the demonstrator was giving. Can anyone give me a step by step directions for trimming these spurs easily? If not is it possible to take the rooster to a vet to have the job done? I appreciate any advise I can get. Thanks!
