    Sorry for your problems. If it were my Rooster I’d take him to a vet to have him dub’d. I’d be scared to try it myself. The vet should know that you want it done for HEALTH reasons (neck,breathing etc) not for show or fighting. My best wishes to you.

    Have you asked the people on the gamefowl threads? They might have some advice about dubbing.

    if you do do it, I would only dub enough for him to be healthy, too much and he will get too warm in the summer.

    I use a dremmel tool to cut spurs with a cutting head spins at such speed to cauterize
    as it cuts no idea would be valid you would need at last three to assist any other opinions

    I am not a vet. I have never dubbed a chicken. But I delved into the world of YouTube to see what most people say about how they dub.

    It does seem medically necessary for the poor fellow. My biggest concern is blood flow. Why did his comb grow so big? I don't know the answer to that but with it being so large I would be concerned with high blood volume.

    In most of the videos I watched people used very sharp scissors. Where the comb is cut seems to be breed standard or personal preference. If it were me I would plan ahead. Even mark a line on his comb to give myself an idea of where I want to cut. Clean everything thoroughly. Be overly prepared for bleeding. In most videos people had flour on hand. I would have something to slow bleeding. Flour, corn starch, styptic powder. Have plenty of towels. A helper would be, well-- helpful, but if not you can do this. I'd wrap him up snug but not too tight and commit. Don't start and stop. Remember you are doing this for his health. You may need to keep pressure on the wound. I wouldn't pinch the comb itself but downward pressure on the cut.

    I hate to say it but be prepared for the worst case scenario of him not making it. I think he has a good chance of surviving this but things do go wrong. At least you would know you tried and he wouldn't be suffocating slowly from his comb being in the way.

    Good Luck! You can do it! Keep us posted.

    His comb grow cause of hotness in my country especially the city I am in temp goes up to 50C in June

    His comb grow almost fully 1 inch in a month of his growing

    We really didn't aware that the comb grow that much giant
    One more friends facing the same @connectdave

    The concern is same with me too about the flow of the blood

    Sometimes his comb gets balck when he sit in cool wind or air condition

    I watch so many videos I hope some one experience the same issue and share their successful story but I'm really glad everyone sending their opinions
