I have an old rooster whose spurs are so large he can barely walk and often sits rather than stand. A breeder told me to saw his spurs of and put bees wax over them to heal up. To me that sounded cruel and painful not to mention getting the rooster to let me do it. Someone else mentioned getting a hot baked potato cut in half and put it on his spurs and then get pliers and remove the spurs. This also sounded bad to me. Is there a humane method to making spurs shorter and more manageable?
