This is one of those questions you find yourself having a hard time asking because it sounds so stupid. But i have always been told there is never a stupid question. (Until now) Is it ture that you can take a hot baking potato and put it on the roosters spur and it will come off in the potato. If this is a true method of spur removal and does anyone know the correct procedure or is that an old farmers tale? After asking this it does sound weird.
