Hi
I posted pics on the raising chick board and thought it might be better over here. Doulce is 13 weeks and is suppose to be a light brahma but she does not look like the older ones at the farm we got her from or like pictures someone else posted of their light brahmas. I am also concerned she is a rooster. Her feathers have come in extremely slow and she even has bald spots. The chicks all get along great so the bald spots aren't from bullying. Any help with breed/gender??? Maybe just funny light brahma genes????? Thank you for any help.

It's a Dark Brahma. From the stance, patchy feathering, red face, and darker coloring, I'm going with cockerel. Plus, are those hackle feathers I see?

Ok, I could be talked in to Dark Brahma though I still have my doubts ( I wonder what a LB, DB cross would look like?), s/he's just so much lighter than mine (not to mention naked so I'm sticking with roo) at the same age:

And then one at 14 weeks that shows her feathering and lacing a little better:
