    I look forward to what you all think. This is our first time having chickens and this Lt. Brahma is one of our favorites.
    Thanks!

    It isn't a True Brahma... (Brahmas have a Pea comb your bird has a Single comb)
    I would say it was a Brahma cross..

    Sorry

    Looks like a pullet to me, because of the comb and hackle feathers.

    Thanks to all for responding. It is ok with me if it is not a "true" brahma. This is our first time having chickens and we are enjoying them all. My family especially likes the Lt. Brahma because she is so different from the rest. Her comb is redder than all my other chickens but so far 4 say pullet and only one vote roo.

    Are the hackle feathers as rounded at the tips as they seem to be in the photos? If so, pullet.
