Has anyone had any experience "trimming" a roosters spurs? I was given a beautiful rooster (along with 2 hens that he considers are "his"), and I already have 8 hens (1 is sitting on a nest of 12 eggs), and 1 rooster. These 2 guys are currently separated in the barn, but they do a lot of posturing and ruffling of their neck feathers (with a wall covered in wire between them). I know that if I let them loose together they are probably going to start fighting. Someone mentioned trimming their spurs so they couldn't do serious harm to each other, until they figured out the new pecking order. I've never done anything like that and am hesitant to do anything that seems harmful. My chickens roam outside (with 2 pygmy goats and our Livestock Guard Dog) during the day, but come in the barn at night to roost. I'd appreciate any suggestions, or ideas on how to keep the injuries to a minimum.
