    I have a hen with spurs. Not just blunt, small spurs, I'm talking sharp, pointy spurs. I'll try to post a picture later, but I was wondering if anyone else has/had a hen with spurs?

    Yes! I have a hen with spurs. Her name is Lois. She's a sex link and the spurs are super sharp. Hen spur power!

    hey, just like with humans, a chicken's gender may not always be black or white...

    I have a 5 year old buff Orphington hen, the one in my avatar who has huge spurs. She had them
    when I first got her at 10 mo.
