    Hi, I'm the new girl.
    I was complaining about my rooster attacking me ( as well as visitors) and my saavy sister-in-law came up with this site and a how-to on de-spurring without all the blood and guts!
    So here I am, chicken-sister since age 9, ready to learn a few more tricks and perhaps share some experiences.

    [​IMG] Yeah, there are a lot of good articles on this website ... almost every chicken question I had pointed me here. So, did you de-spur your rooster? Is he still attacking you?

    Welcome to BYC [​IMG] Glad you joined us! Spurs have their use I'm sure, but not nice to be on the receiving end of that use!

    How is he doing without spurs? I ask because he still has wings and a sharp beak and nails to do damage with. Removing his spurs won't change his personality.
