    You can clip the spurs back but it wont stop them from fighting. If there arent any hens with them they will probably stop fighteing.

    I have seen them just twisted off and the Roo didn't even flinch. I know it sounds farfetched but it's true, I sawed it with me one good eye.

    well i tried filing down my new bantam roos spurs and then it started to bleed like it was the quick and i didnt watn to hurt him so i did know what to do i stopped the small amount of bleeding. my one bantam and 2 standards grew up together theyre ok so far but this roo is new and has bigger spurs than the rest i have a bunch of hens so that isnt the problem
