Banana is our 9 week old buff brahma, bought her from the local feed store and was told they order from Cackle Hatchery. Questioning the red wattles and comb. She is friendly with us but a jerk to the rest of the ladies, always chasing and pecking them, occasionally pinning their neck down. First two pictures is at about 7 weeks, rest are 9 weeks old.

Thanks everybody. I’ve had my suspicions for awhile. Banana is my 7 year olds favorite. I wasn’t prepared to have a rooster but we will try having a rooster this go around 😊 I’ll post an updated photo this fall.
 
We love our Banana man. He really is the sweetest but he is no where near average buff Brahma rooster weight! He weighs 3.8 lbs, a little over a year old. His beak and one wing is crooked. Plus found this today, feels like a nail growing out of his chest.
