We took off Charlie's spurs with pliers on Monday of this week. My mom used pliers and twisted the spurs off at the base, we even watched a vid to know what we're doing. But the tip of the inner part broke somehow and it was bleeding, so I took a napkin to it and some water but it continued. I read that you could use white sugar to stop bleeding so my mom sprinkled some on (we didn't know what amount to put). We then sprayed BluKote and hot pick to prevent the hens picking at it. On Tuesday in the morning there was blood on the sidewalks an after I sprayed it off with the hose I looked at Charlie. The spur area was just messy and the BluKote faded sort of so I assumed the hens were picking at it. I sprayed more BluKote and hot pick. Does it normally bleed like that? What did we do wrong? Any remedies to fix the messy look and any other damage?
