    I was just wondering if anyone had any pictures of their rooster's spurs? We recently got some chickens, and one cochin rooster came with. He is only about 12 weeks old, so not quite full grown. And I was just wondering how large the spurs will get?

    I dunno how many people take pictures of their roo's legs LOL I know I'm weird.
    There are "how to trim your roo's spurs" videos on youtube so I'm sure you can find some pix online if you looked around a bit, just aim for the "how to trim them" type websites

    My RIR roo is about 19 months old and I haven't trimmed his yet (but I've been thinking about doing it someday) forgive the dirty feet, it was muddy that day hehehe
    He didn't get noticeable spurs until well past 6 months old, closer to a year before they were much of anything.

    I think rooster spurs are one of those things that just keeps on growing and growing and growing if not trimmed/broken off, so I imagine that they get pretty long after a while.

    This roo was hatched in march, and you can kinda see little bumps of spurs, but they are blunt-tipped yet and not that big

    Cochins don't get very big of spurs, and honestly, you won't need to worry about their size until he is at least 12 months old.
