    I purchased this Light Brahma as a pullet but saw her "mount" another hen the other day while out in the yard. I haven't heard a crow yet but I haven't received any eggs from this chicken either. I can't have any roosters where I live so any help would be great! This is the first time I've ever raised any chickens so I'm new to this...

    Guess I'll post an ad and see him off. Too bad because he's really pretty. Hopefully someone can use him for breeding maybe. I don't know enough to know if he's breeding quality or not.

    Aside from that awful tail, that's a very nice looking Brahma cockerel. [​IMG]

    He's standard hatchery quality, but at least he doesn't have the awful pencilling a lot of hatchery brahmas possess.
