    I have 2 light brahma chicks that are 5-6 weeks old. I don't know if they're both hens or both roosters. I took pictures of them so I hope that will help.

    Thanks a lot. I was hoping for one of them to be a hen instead of 2 roosters.

    No, that means I seconded what that poster said, in this case leaning toward a pair. Brahmas are slow to mature so I'm not surprised that comb ins't red yet, but it's large enough to set off the roo-dar.
