    Here are a couple of my Light Brahmas. Everytime I think I have sex figured out, I see something that makes me think otherwise. So, now I have stared at Hackle feathers that I cannot really see, all of the feathers around the neck look pointed. So, please oh wise ones, take a stab at it for me. I won't probably keep the boys, though no reason I cannot except that I don't want roosters in with the laying hens. At one point, I thought they were all cockerals. I have found taking pics of chickens is harder than taking pics of preschoolers, but here they are.

    Thanks for looking, oh ya, almost forgot, born end of March, so about 7 weeks old.

    #1- Looks like a roo to me because of the redder comb.
    #2- ? Its hard for me to tell from the pic, but I am saying roo since it looks like he has a pretty red comb.
    #3- Pullet
    #4- Pullet

    Better pics of #2's face would help with guessing gender.
