I previously wrote about trimming Mr. Big's spurs. We did not trim enough, because today Doc noticed that De has started looking raw like Vo. We immediately began waiting for nightfall when the chickens would be snoozing on their roost.
We crept into the coop and snatched Mr. Big from the roost. He was not pleased and communicated his displeasure. The girls argued for his immediate release, but their pleas fell on deaf ears.
Here are the steps used to remove the rooster's spurs:
1. Hold the rooster by the feet, upside down.
|Spurs are still too pointy|
|Grab spur and turn one way|
|Turn the other way|
|Pull straight off|
|Put a little cornstarch on bloody spurs|
