My chicks have tiny pimple-like bumps on the back of there legs that look like developing spurs. I've heard that hens can have spurs too, although I'm not sure of that. They are golden comets females, ( red sex link ) and are all a red / buff. They are about 2 and a half weeks old if that helps.
Thanks,

Yes the hens have spur buds as well and some even develop full spurs. If it is just one on each leg then it does sound like spur buds.
