Hen with Spurs?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
So I have this fantastic silver Lakenvelder hen, who lays beautiful white eggs, but she has spurs?!?! They are a little shorter than the size of the tip of your finger to the first joint. I was freaked out at first when I noticed them and was questioning if she was really a roo and my other white egg later was just laying two eggs a day. But, she doesn't have pointy saddle feathers or pointed feathers on her neck! Is this normal?

Some of my hens have spurs, one older welsummer needs hers trimmed every few months because they are so long.

We had a bantam barred rock hen that had Spurs about the same size and we thought she was a roo but then we saw her lay an egg

We got 3 Buttercup hens from McMurray last spring. All 3 are all growing spurs. I've had an occasional hen in the past with them too, so it certainly isn't unheard of.
