Yikes! Do most roosters do that? I've never been spurred, yet at least. Mine hop up on the roost to get handfed. I routinely roust the hens off to gather the eggs and my roosters could care less. My older rooster is a good fella though and so sweet to the hens, when they are in the nest box getting ready to lay, he's there talking sweet to her and dancing around on the roost there. I've never had one to fuss at me but I'll be on guard now, that sounded pretty painful.
