I'm very new to chickens so don't laugh, ok? I have a young (3 month) blue Maran that I've posted about in other forums (he/she has fused toes, was growing slowly but has recently caught up with the others, then started developing a wattle so I've questioned his/her gender). I think this post will end the my questions about his/her gender but I thought I'd throw it out. This chick is the friendliest to me of all my little flock of six Marans and Ameraucanas but today I was showing my sis-in-law how they've grown and picked up one and told sis that I wasn't sure if it was a he or she yet. When I put that one down little "Dixie" rushed over to him and all of a sudden flared out all of his/her neck feathers in a perfect circle. I've never seen this before, so what do you think, is Dixie a Dwayne?
