My rooster had very long and curved spurs - he struggles to walk and cannot sit down properly but lies on his side. Can I trim the spurs?
Welcome to BYC!
Yes, you can do some work on the spurs and the rooster will appreciate it (even if it doesn't seem like it at the time, lol). There are a few different methods you can use - as old hen suggested above you might be best served to read up on a few of them to find one that is most within your personal comfort zone in handling the rooster, etc. as some folks are more squeamish than others with things like this.
