    No, those are toes, not spurs. I'll get you a pic of a multi-spurred bird [​IMG]

    Those feet, especially on the black silkies I used have, remind me of tiny gorilla hands. Creepy, too. LOL

    Sometimes the back toes will be fused, other times they can be going opposite directions. I've got one where the toenail on the top toe is facing upwards on one foot, and downward on the other. I have even seen them where the second toe is attached at a point along the first one, but isn't attached to the leg. You never know what you're going to get.
