Two weeks later, my eighteen month old Buff Brahma roo Penrod's spur nubs still haven't hardened. On Dec, 19th, I removed his one-inch spurs by twisting them off. There was considerable bleeding at the time, and they bled for almost an hour afterward. He has continued to injure the nubs, causing fresh bleeding each time. Today, I was simply hugging him and as he settled in close to me, his spurs rubbed on my pants leg, causing fresh bleeding - so much, I had to change my wet pants. Is there anything I can do to hasten the hardening process? I've removed spurs from two other roos, and had no bleeding problems.
