    Usually White Faced Black Spanish hens don't have spurs. However, there are exceptions to every rule, but usually not.

    How do know it's Spanish? Does it say Hola instead of BAWK?

    sometimes some hens do have spurs but that is due to genetics. She would nto be used for showing but breeding will be ok but remember her daughters will pick up some of the spur traits.

    my 1 WFBS hen does have spurs. A 1/2" one on her right leg and a smaller knubby one on her left leg. She's 1 1/2 yrs old and almost all white faced now, just not 100%. Maybe next time she molts she'll look like the clown I want her to look like. I love that look!
