    I just wanted to know what the sop for cubalayas says about spurs. Should they have one large single spur, multiple "normal" spurs or multiple small or non existent spurs. your help is appreciated

    My old standard from the 1980's says nothing about multiple or non-existent spurs. Perhaps someone has a newer one and the description has been changed? I have honestly wondered about this myself.

    Cubalayas should have short,domelike spurs. Multiple spurs are preferred.

    Everyone breeding poultry should have a recent copy of the Standard of Perfection. They are available from many of the poultry supply companies or from the APA. "amerpoultryassn.com"

    Thanks for the answer. At some point the multiple spurs was added, my standard just says short domelike spurs. You are correct that we all ought to have a current standard. [​IMG]
