Not sure about my Brahmas sex

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I recently got 6 chicks who are now 9 weeks old. In fact, my brahmas in question are 10 weeks old, I have 2.
One of them has a 3 pea comb (is that what it's called) & a black long curved feather. The other had a single comb, and the tail feathers are pointy. Any advice would be lovely!! Cheers!!

above photos are the single comb and crazy tail feathers


is this a roo??

I say pullet.  That comb is rather small and pale and I do not see any wattles.

I'd say pullets as well however, brahmas are very slow maturing so don't be surprised if one day she starts crowing lol

Thanks everyone! I hope she is a SHE so I can keep her. She is still more pale and not very red, but that tail feather has got me Questioning. My other brahma is nothing like her. Here are photos of both!
