    I was looking at my 10-12 week old Silkie chicks tonight and noticed what appears to be spurs growing on the one I'm sure is a cockerel. My question is I noticed smaller "bumps" on two of my other chicks, does this mean I have 3 cockerels? That would suck, means I only have 1 pullet.

    Hens can grow spurs. They will all have little bumps there to start with.
