    We boought Pollito "Bantam Rooster" two weeks ago for $6 and was told he was 16 weeks old. I'm thinking he is a lot older

    He doesn't look super mature to me. How large are his spurs? Not always the best indicator, but it can give us an idea.

    I'm thinking the 16 weeks is pretty much spot on.
