    OK, I just today noticed that one of my 1+ yo aracauna hens has spurs (about 3/4"). I'm pretty sure she is a hen as I've gotten 11 eggs from her and 10 other hens several times and I've never heard her crow in 1+ year. I have a rooster, she doesn't look like him at all. She is hen size, slightly large ears, crest, etc., but nothing extrordinary. Any ideas about what's going on? anyone else have this?

    It happens and it is normal. Nothing to worry about.
