    I have a sweet light brahma who (we hope) is a rooster.S/he is obviously the head of the pecking order, has long tail feathers and thick feet. Unfortunately his/her comb is not very decoupled but is red.[​IMG]

    To me, at that age, I think it is a pullet.

    I'm thinking pullet, but a comb shot would help. Brahmas can be so slow to mature they can leave you guessing even at this age.
