"If you want to get rid of the rooster's spurs. It is very simple. All you have to do according to
Stromberg's Book of Poultry is the following:
Place a hot baked potato on the spur and hold it there for a few minutes. Remove the baked potato, twist the spur and you will find it comes right off. There is no blood or mess. Use another freshly baked hot potato for the other spur. This technique really works well.
Advice: Don't eat the baked potato afterwards, let it cool off and feed it to the rooster instead."
Is this for real? Has anyone ever tried it? I have a couple of JG roosters and a banty rooster that desperately need trimming and I am prepared to use dog nail trimmers. Any suggestions out there? thanx!
