Do ALL roosters have spurs? or do some breeds not?
Far as I know all roosters have spurs and so do some hens. Some breeds have multiple spurs, but I haven't heard of any breeds who don't have any.
Spurs are the last thing to develop on a male, far after crowing and shiny rooster feathers show up.

Yep they all roos have spurs somelike sumatras have multiple ones too.If you want them off Ive heard of the "baked potatoe method"look it up.
My roos spurs are little 1/2 or less inch nubs with no claw per se...he is very non agressive, sweet to his 'girls' - i wondered if he would pass this trait on (I never did anything to them - he is 9 mos old now)
Quote:You don't mention the breed, but my brahma roo had next to nothing for spurs until he was around 18 months old. I was beginning to wonder if he was ever going to get them.
