    Spurs begin to form at about 9-12 months on turkeys. Most poultry has a lifespan of about 4-12 years in my experiences.

    I have Narragansett and Royal Palm toms that are 7 months old and they have spurs started and beards starting to show. Spurs are just raised bumps but definitely visible.
