    I have a 2 year old Bantam Sultan hen that has spurs. How common is this and will it be a disqualification if I show her? Will she pass this on to her babies?

    I know in Polish it is a fault or DQ, not sure on Sultans though. . .

    For all breeds, except Games and Sumatras, spurs on a female are a defect, not a disqualification.

    I have a mottled houdan hen that has spurs, and one of my BO hens did too, though neither passed it into their chicks.
