    Sorry I couldn't get a better picture, he or she is very camera shy, but hopefully you'll be able to tell. I got five from Cackle and they were all supposed to be pullets but this one is bigger and has a bigger comb than the rest. I've never had brahmas before so I'm not so sure. I'm hoping for a roo so I can replace my old roo, that got killed by a coyote.

    There is no black in the saddle area. That is a female. Are the other four colored the same.

    Looks like a roo to me, comb and waddles pretty well colored and defined for a 3 month old. I have females with black in the saddle. If this is a hatchery bird, color is often a crap shoot.

    Quote:Yes the other four are colored the same except that the bird in question has more black on the neck.

    Can you post a photo of the tail. Looks like really good quality, especially for a hatchery bird.
