    What kind of spurs do OEGB roosters grow? I have little OEGB/Serama hybrid roo that's just six months old, and I noticed this morning he's started to grow spurs, just little nubs on the back of his feet.

    Thanks! That's a very informative picture. I was thinking the spur was going to be like another toe with a toenail and everything, but it's really not at all like that.
