    At what age to Roosters begin to get noticible spurs? I have a crazy cross breed bird - 1/2 Ameraucana and 1/2 Maran that has a sort of goofy comb... like a single comb growing through a pea comb. I've thought he was a Roo for some time now, but I'm not seeing his hackle or saddle feathers develop and he has no spurs whatsoever... He's 2 months old.
