can any one say if they are male or female?
I'm no expert but I think they are both girls.
I'll be the voice of dissention and say I think they're both boys. They have shading of darker color in the wings that is a male characteristic. Females are a more even shade over the body.
Brahmas are slow bloomers and may not crow or try to mate until well after 6 months.
they really need to grow some more. Question, Are you holding them up by their wings??????????????????
i was looking at the saddle feathers, they changed and that made me think that they are both males
A closer picture of their saddle feathers would help. On the first picture, the chick on the left looks like a Male.
yes he is and if you go to chicken auctions they are always held by the wings. if held properly it shouldn't hurt them but not recommended though...as for gender they do have that 2 toned coloring that is only seen on cockerels and thus i am leaning towards cockerels
Not recommended for sure. There are just so many other ways to hold them, just doesnt seem right I guess. I suppose it would depend on genetics also I think their development and the thick legs look like cockerel also.
about the wings, yes, only when the brahma are chick's and not heavy so it won't harm them.
