    I have a 6mo BO that's supposed to be a hen but I've always thought she has a little too much comb and wattle(sp) I have 8 hens including the BO and have never gotten more than 7 eggs in a day. Today I took a good look at it's feet and it has a bump, just a bump on it's leg where a spur would be. What would the spur of a 6mo BO roo look like? Bigger than this or does it look like my OrpyGal is an OrpyGuy?

    At that age, he'd probably have pencil eraser size spurs, as well as dangly saddle feathers. Both sexes have the bump there. A pic will tell all!
