    Im no expert... dont count on this... but mine just turned 19 weeks and I am seeing the spur part form on my roosters... not the spur itself... but where the spur comes out of... hope this makes since!

    Depends on the breed of rooster really. I've had a young roo with spurs twice as long as my larger roo who was like 4 years old.
