    I just read two contradictory articles about cubalyas. One said that they were bred to not have spurs. One said that Multiple spurs should be produced. Who is right? thanks

    From the American Standard of Perfection "spurs are short and domelike; not pointed; multiple spurs preferred".

    When in doubt, always consult the Standard. Talk is cheap. The Standard should be your Bible when looking to breed poultry correctly.
