    Does anyone know when roosters start developing spurs?

    Quote:My rir is starting to get large bumps for spurs. He's about 5 months old. But my seramas have already little spikes and they are about 4 months. I guess it depends on bantam/ standard size

    They don't really get real spurs till they are close to a year old. They'll have small ones by about ten months, generally.
