Do certain breeds of roosters spurs grow faster?

    I have 3 roosters.1 which I have a question about.

    Zeus,a New Hampshire red who will be 2 this spring has extremely long spurs.Which I just noticed a few minute sago are nearly as long as my last rooster spurs who was nearly 6.Which this is odd because my last rooster was odlr with slow spur growth,while Zeus spurs grew extremely fast.

    I'masking,depending on breed,do the spurs grow faster?I would not think but this make me wonder.

    it seems to be an individual thing, and is probably hereditary.
