Help confirm the sexes of these 12 1/2 week old Light Brahmas

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

I ordered 8 Light Brahmas, 4 roosters and 4 hens. I lost one at 8 weeks from wry neck, though I wasn't sure what gender it was (might have been a rooster, but was too sickly to tell). So I have 7 left. Here's some pictures:

 

Bird 1 - I'm pretty sure this one is a pullet

 

 

Bird 2 - This one also looks like a pullet

 

 

Bird 3 - Another pullet, I believe

 

 

Bird 4 - Rooster, I think

 

 

Bird 5 - Definite rooster as well

 

 

Bird 6 - This one also looks like a pullet to me

 

 

Bird 7 - Really not sure on this one. Looks like maybe a rooster????? Sorry, my finger was covering the lens. ;)

 

Thanks for any replies. I'm really not sure on Number 7, and the rest I'm just looking for confirmation. 

2 Barred Rocks, 4 White Leghorns, 6 Light Brahmas, and 3 Partridge Rocks

I agree with all your guesses, and #7 looks like a young cockerel to me.

Bird #4 is definitely a rooster, not quite sure on number 6 though. Could be a pullet. Hope this helped.:rolleyes: Good luck! :thumbsup
