How can I cut my roosters spers downwithout freakin them out or anything. My rooster tanks spers are LONG and Im not puttin the hens back with him until there cut so he dont kill them. Can I file them or what should I use to cut them? I dont want to go to the vet cuz that costs so much money just to do the simplist things. How can I do it at home?

They can do some damage, I wouldn't take a chance, I would ask a Vet what they suggest, maybe if you can put something over his head so he can't see, he might be calmer, but make sure it not tight, don't try is alone & make sure you don't smother him. Good Luck

It's very easy to "hypnotize" chickens. We used to do it all the time when I was a kid. You hold them in your arm, face up, and start with your pointer finger about 6 inches away. Move it slowly toward the chicken's beak until they don't move. You can lay them down on their backs, and they still won't move. You can then do the clipping or whatever you need to do before snapping them out of it by clapping your hands right in front of their faces. As kids, we used to do it for fun. We had a long bench in the back yard, and would put all the chickens side by side.
