Hi, I have a two year old RIR who has a growth on one of her legs. It looks kind of like a spur, but only 1 centimeter in length.
Is this normal? Could it be something other than a spur?
Thanks,
Zoë

Does she have long, pointy neck feathers on one side and short, rounded ones on the other? This sounds like a genatomorphic hen. This is when one physical half is male and the other is female. She may crow and she may lay eggs but she will be sterile.

She has never crowed before. But, maybe she is a chimera. . .
