  4. Hens can develop spurs sometimes small sometimes just as large as some cocks (some breeds more than others) and/or hens can have a visible 'bud' in the spur location... No hard fast rules...

    Both are hens. They appear to be a gamey or Phoenix type breed/breed mix. Many hens of that type develop spurs.
