    I am going to need to cull my cockerels down to one, but I'm not sure if I have three or four! This is Dusty. S/he is 10 weeks old.

    What do you think, cockerel or pullet? S/he just has no comb, but she doesn't seem as wide as my other pullets. :)

    Yay! What do you all think about a light brahma with three very small rows of pea comb with no color to it and no other obvious cockerel signs? Also 10 weeks. Is three rows on a pea comb ALWAYS a cockerel?

    Unlike Easter Eggers, with Brahmas three rows of peas are common in the hen's combs.

    See, I keep reading that light Brahma's have three rows of pea comb if a cockerel. But I don't see anything on how accurate that is.
