    I went to remove my roosters spurs for the first time and when I flipped it upside down it threw up its food and food was stuck in its throat, I tried getting it out but sadly it died. What did I do wrong?

    It sounds like you emptied his crop by turning him upside down. People do this when the chickens have sour crop but never let stuff come out for more than 2 to 3 seconds. It sounds like he chocked. Sorry for you loss!
