Can y'all give me your input? Hen or roo? About 4 months old. Hasn't crowed but I'm just not sure and I'd like to take it (her????) home. TIA!

I'm thinking cockerel, but I'm not sure. More photos might help.

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!

Brahmas are ridiculously slow to mature. Some boys aren't really obvious until after 5 months old. I think it's probably a cockerel.

I'm 90% sure that's a cockerel. How much can you narrow the age down?

I believe it is right at 4 months old, maybe 18 weeks at most. I'll try to get some better pictures of the hackle & saddle feathers as soon as we get a break in this ridiculous rain we'getting here in North GA.

I'm thinking cockerel. My gold laced brahma cockerel didn't get saddle feathers until it was 6-7 months old. And it looks like there might be glossy hackle feathers right by the shoulder.

Currently have:

LF:,buff laced brahma , gold laced brahma , light brahma,, ,bearded white polish, leghorn

Bantam: WC polish, silver polish, bearded white polish, partridge silkies, red pyle phoenix, red/buff cochin, brown red modern game, splash and white silkies

In the bator:  Some of everything

It appears to have a triple rowed pea comb and has brighter patches of color in it's wing and back which indicate cockerel.
