    I have seen some nice sized spurs on them, but my buff orp has the normal size rooster spur.

    Mine seems to have the same size spurs as the other roosters. My orpington rooster (bred as lemon cuckoo, but looks buff to me) is really big, but I have found him to be the most docile of my roosters. I know each chicken is different, but he's a really good rooster that treats the hens well and is not aggressive at all.
