    Heres a couple of pics of my about 12/14 week old brahma's. Hoping 2 hens, but not sure. 1 of the chicks was a little bt larger than the other when i got them, so the larger may be a week or 2 older. Hen or roo? Thanks.

    I would say both pullets, but everyone including me thought my light was a pullet at 12 weeks and by 15 weeks it was unmistakably a Cockerel...lol He sprouted roo saddle feathers almost over night...From 14 to 15 weeks.

    With me being new anyway, it seems Brahms are a tricky breed to sex.. I was thinking the smaller one was a pullet, and more concerned with the larger.The larger used to buck up at my lil EE roo, and vice versa, so i thought it may well be a roo also.. Do hens buck up to young roo's?

    I'm going with two pullets. Yes, some hens stand up to roosters.
