Thank you for that info! I knew he had to be a young roo! He's a blue maran. My other chick, a cuckoo maran has a small comb but it's flesh colored, so I believe that one is a pullet.

You know, I wad wondering about whether both genders can get spurs or not. Here is a picture of both chicks together.
