Just wondering who is what? Got them at our poultry swap, and they are about 2-3 months old, theought they were all pullets, but that first one sure seems rooish?

Any sign of spurs? Saddle? I'm not sure, if the first one is, the second one is but might be pics. Here is my 2 year old roo.

they are a couple months, from show quality, only survivors of a massacre of his brahmas... he put them in with some teenager birds, and they got picked on

I'm sorry, but those birds are not show quality. The first bird in the second set of photos is the only one that may be breeder quality. The first bird is a pullet.

The others #2 and #3 look to be males, and look to be a mix between Light Brahma and dark Brahma.

#4 I am going to say female, but looks like it could go either way.

i don't mind about the show quality- since they are just for my little home flock- originally told they were all pulluts, hope thats how it turns out, but a brahma roo is ok, as they are so friendly

I'm no expert on brahmas, but a couple of yours do look a bit dark to be a light brahma. I believe pullets should still have tiny pink combs by 3 months old - check the wattles too - they shouldn't be very big on a pullet of that age.

Here's some pics of my roo about the same age as your chicks (9 & 12 weeks) so you can compare his comb & wattles with your chicks. I have no idea of his quality - he was hatched from an egg I got on ebay:

He was 9 weeks old here:

These next two pics were taken when he was 12 weeks old - just after he started crowing.
