There are a few different chickens in here. All 9 weeks. There are 2 olive eggers. One labeled olive egger the other OE2,. There are 2 blue rocks but they look the same. The same with the Brahmas.

Main ones I am not sure on are the Olive egger, blue EE and red EE. The rest I am pretty sure are pullets. But please let me know if u think different.


Oh what do you think of the last 2. Both 5 weeks. Hatched the same day. One fully feathered one partially feathered.

To me (at this time) nothing seems cockerel except the very last bird.
Phew!!! Thinking maybe both the younger ones are boys. One because of the big comb, but funny that one feathered super early and I read most times boys feather slower.... The white one I am thinking boy mainly because it is feathering soooo slow!!! Still no tail really...
 
One of my Brahman was super slow to feathering.. as of right now 6 1/2 weeks old and he is def a he..his comb is starting to grow.. it is about 2x as big and pink as the other brahma I have and he still has little to no tail feathers
 
My boy compared to my girl brahma.. his comb, waddle and ears look redder in person.. idk why my phone washed him out

Very last bird is a cockerel.

Please post updated pics of the Brahmas in a couple weeks.
Not sure if the other little one is a light Brahma or a mix. He has feathered feet but the colored feathers look like it has brown and black.

The other Brahmas are buff Brahmas and I am 99% sure they are pullets.

Do you think the bigger ones are pullets?

I only saw 2 Brahmas - a Buff and a Light. You didn't show the Light's comb.

The buff has a pretty big comb, but it's quite pale. I do know that Brahmas take forever and a day to mature. That's why I asked for updates on those.

@Rhodebar Lover what do you think?

I have 2 buff but they look the same as far as size and color of the comb. One may be a hair smaller but not really. I may have a pic of the Brahma's comb from the side can't remember but it isn't as big as that pic makes it look.

I didn't show the little ones comb but it still barely has one. That one is just so confusing being 5 weeks are barely feathered (it was broody raised in the coop and run from the day after hatch, it hatched in the incubator) and like no tail...... The other little one (the last pic) was broody hatched and raised the same time as the light one.
 
The last one isn't a Brahma, so you can't really compare much there. Either way, the light chick is too young to really guess on right now. That one will definitely need an update.

Everyone matures differently. Even within the same breed. I wouldn't draw any conclusions from that alone.
