Dark brahma gender?

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
I probably should be able to tell on my own, but this is my first time with chickens. I ordered my chicks this summer, and I got a free chick that we determined was a dark Brahma. We assumed it would be male since most of the "free exotic" ones are, but at 19 weeks I was expecting it's comb and waddles to be more pronounced like my black giant's.

Cockerel

I set fire to the rain! Watch it pour as I, touched your face. Well it burn while I cried, because I heard it screaming out your name. And I threw us into flames. I knew that was the last time, the last time...I set fire to the rain! -Adele

Definitely a cockerel. Dark Brahma pullets lack the large dark patches that your bird has.

The dark Brahma is a cockerel, and pretty sure the black bird is also.

Why wouldn't it have it's comb developed, yet?

The dark Brahma and black bird are cockerels. Brahmas have a small type of comb known as a pea comb which never becomes very large.

Breeder of Dutch bantams, Wyandotte bantams, and a few exhibition rabbits.

Feel free to ask me questions about chicken and rabbit care, breeds, and showing! I'm always happy to help!

And all the men and women merely players;
They have their exits and their entrances,
And one man in his time plays many parts."
