Buff Brahma Bantams

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I'm having some trouble sexing my buff brahma bantams. I've heard they could all be males. I thought at first I had 2 males and 4 females. Now I'm thinking it's 3 and 3. They're almost 8 weeks old now. I've got pictures of them individually and a few group pictures.

1)



2)



3)



4)



5)



6)



#5 I know is a roo. He's had that red comb since he was 3 weeks. #1 followed suit at 4 weeks with the red comb. They both have thick legs too.


Those thick legs on the left belong to #5.

I think I can say for certain #1 and #5 are roos. Does it look like I have more roos in the bunch? I kinda suspect maybe #3 and #4 but I go back and forth. They really don't have tree trunk legs like #1 and #2 though. Some days I think I have two roos and 4 hens. Some days I have no idea.

I think #1 looks like the only possible cockerel for now.

#5 is the one on the left of the first group shot. He turned red and got a big comb at 3 weeks old. I was certain that one was a rooster. Lol. I'm horrible at this. If only these guys had giant single combs!

Actually, it might be a rooster... I didn't see "him". Hopefulyy someone else has an opinion.
