You can do that because you don't have a maniacal attack rooster! Even though I trimmed his spurs, (it required a hacksaw) he is still a force to be reckoned with any time you go near a hen. :-)

I will be moving my 5 girls into their new pen in the next week. They are going to love their MUCH bigger hen house and yard.
