    I have 4 silkies, they are around 19-20 weeks. which is around 4months+. On three of them i can feel a VERY LITTLE pointy thing but i am sure its not a toe. One of them i cannot feel it and it is smaller than the other 3. She also doesn't have that pointy thing. PLEASE tell me i don't have 3 rooster! Does Spur = rooster? Are those LITTLE pointy thing in the back of their leg spur? I can only feel 1 tho and its the size of a rice.

    I'm fairly certain the girlies can get spurs as well. That should probably not be the only gender determining quality.

    Quote:Roos tend to get bigger spurs, but girls can have them also. Most of the time the little bumps that the girls get don't get very big.
