    This may sound naive. I have I thought 3 hen - cuckoo marans. They are 2 years old. There have been days where I get 3 dark brown eggs. So imagine my surprise today when I saw spurs
    My goodness - there isn't anything else about this chicken that looks like a rooster? So wierd!!!

    Spurs on hens are normal, not all hens will get them. Kinda like how some women are more prone to facial hair then others.
