It's time to remove my WCBP's spur. They things are several inches long, and very sharp. When he walks, it's like watching cogs on a wheel. And now that he has a bunch of hens to play with, I'm concerned for their safety. I've gotten mauled by the suckers several times (flogged?), and want them GONE. I've watched the youtube video that people here recommend, along with others like it. I've read people's posts. I'm still scared to death of hurting him. Is it really as easy as it looks? Hold him firmly, grab the spur with pliers about an inch above the base (so as not to pinch the squishy bits below), and twist/rock till it comes off? Really? That's it? Should I smear some Neosporin on the stumps when I'm done, or will he be OK without?
