Brahma hen or rooster?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Hi, i am a new member.
I have a brahma I recieved as a chick, it must be around 6 months old now.
I believed it was a hen, but im not sure anymore....however never heard it crow! Happily lives with 4 other cockrels.
Any help greatly apreciated :-)

:welcome  By now if it is a cockerel it should be showing 'male', pointy hackle and saddle feathers.  Brahmas tend to be slow at maturing and a 6 month old cockerel very well might not be crowing yet.

Oh dear another noon egg layer!
What do you look for to show a brahma at local shows? Does he have potential?
