    Can someone please tell me what sex this blue Maran is? I was sure it was a pullet, but yesterday it picked a fight with my Wyandotte roo so now I'm wondering. Thank-you!

    That would be a cockerel. If you look closely, you can see the pointed hackle feathers at the neck, and the tail is already getting a curve to it.
