    I have a 6 1/2 week old buff Brahma bantie and so far it looks like she has feathered out like all the pics I have seen of pullets in this breed. But, her comb already has red (comb is still small) and she seems to make a crow-like sound different than the others. I'm totally a newbie so I'm wondering if she is just making a more mature pullet sound vs. an actual crow. Does anyone else have experience with this breed that has an opinion on this. It seems like she would already be feathering out like a roo at this point but I'm totally paranoid about the crow. Thanks!

    Man, I have a new appreciation for all the photos people post here after chasing them around trying to get a clear photo [​IMG]

    Here they are. So what do you think of my buff brahma bantie? pullet or roo? and I guess while we are at it, is my SLW's comb and wattle looking pullet-ish? Again, they are 6-7 weeks old. Thanks so much!

    If trying to crow, rooster. If I was buying that bird, I'd buy it for a rooster.

    Check neck feathers, are they pointed or rounded at tips? pointed, then cock.
