    We hatched a blue Maran (or splash.. Not too sure on coloring) that is now one month old and we think it might just be a roo. It's comb is growing VERY quickly.

    I've read posts that some pullets have big combs like this, but we hatched Marans before and our pullets still have teeny tiny combs at 4 months.

    Think we should hold on to her? Or rehome him?
