    I have the two OEG that will be 7 wks old this weekend. I thought they had spurs but they don't. I compared their legs to my rooster and hens. The rooster doesn't have the spurs anymore but he's got the fleshy thing there up higher on his legs. The babies have nothing that look like it.

    What age do they get spurs if they are roos?

    Also I've been looking at the tail feathers alot and how they carry them. They carry their tails the same way the hen does...up and tapered to a point. Gravy's is up and spread out flat like a fan.

    Their combs haven't gotten any bigger or any redder...they are still light pink. The hen has a dark pinkish comb too. They are pretty close to the same size as the hen and her comb is bigger than thiers.
