    My colleague just bought two Brahma hens Buff Colombia ( that what they call it over here).
    I went to see her and the chickens today cause she has more Brahma's only pullets. But I am starting to believe that this little one is a Roo. They suppose to be from June 2011 but I am guessing they are younger..

    Who can give me an answer? The last pic shows a tiny green tail feather..

    I agree with you, that bird is starting to look suspiciously male. I think I see saddlefeathers starting to drape over his side.

    I agree...those look suspiciously like saddle feathers poping up back there...is that red actually there, or is it dirt smudged on his white feathers?

    Yes, looks like a handsome little rooster! I believe he's called a light Brahma over here, in the US.
     
  6. i can barely see it, but it does look like he has saddle feathers, you got your self one handsome roo! [​IMG]
     
  7. 100% roo! He has the saddle feathers, the stance, that reddish-pink comb, and take a close look at some of the tail feathers, few are beginning to sharpen. Handsome little roo.

    It's dirt smudged on his feathers. My colleague just text me this morning saying she really start to believe it's a roo [​IMG]
