    I was looking at oone of hens that i just got and i noticed something strange....she has ONE spur on her left leg...its not a small one either, its huge about an inch and a half-2 inches....so theres nothing wrong with her i was just wondering why a hen would have a spur...i know that hens will sometimes become the flocks "rooster" if there is no rooster with them, but i dont think that is the case here...its very strange....the birds i got are kinda strange tho....

    Nothin strange about it Amy. And it has nothing to do with her gender. Lot`s of hens will grow a spur or 2. Just one of lifes mysteries.........Pop
