    does anyone know what age my Roos spurs will start growing?
    their 9weeks.

    I have checked their legs and nothing yet!
    is it just me or are spurs a little scary!!

    A lot of times they will be nubs until about 4 or 5 months.

    And even then it can take quite a while before they get big and "scary." There are several methods for removing spurs and/or blunting them if you wish (once they are large enough to do so).
