    I understand that the brahma is a little young, I'll repost pics of her when she's older if need be.

    The light Brahma. She is started to get wattles but they are not in any way red. These darn birds are so dusty! They'll luckily be going out after the weekend.

    This guy had gotten into a couple of pretty big fights with my Orpington who is 100% a rooster. Maybe that's a sign he's a cockerel.

    Thank you guys! If you guys need better pics let me know!

    The pictures won't enlarge for me so I couldn't say for sure. 6-7 weeks is a little young for non-single combed breeds.

    10 weeks is a better age. Both breeds mature slowly.
