    I was really hoping this was a hen, but I'm starting to think it is a rooster. Thoughts? This is my first time owning chickens so I'm not very sure about sexing. 20190521_173501.jpg 20190521_173515.jpg 20190521_173556.jpg

    Looks like a cockerel, but Brahmas are a tricky breed to sex..

    I'd guess it's a boy.

    Here is my 7 week old Brahma x Cochin mix. Can’t tell if it’s a roo or hen either.

    This is a cockerel. For comparison, my buff brahma when she was a pullet at 10 weeks.
