    Hey Guys,

    Did I luck out with my oldest rooster, Roopert the Ameraucana? He barely has any spur nubs at all...no indication of growing spurs other than two teeny little buds.

    Can a rooster not ever get spurs?

    Your rooster is still young, give him time, some have larger spurs and some have smaller ones, my bantam roosters barely have any, and my Orpingtons need trimming twice a year.
