    I recently ordered a light Brahma (August of this year), super sweet little bird, I actually love him/her quite a bit. But I’m afraid even that even ordering only hens, I may have ended up with another rooster (in fact I’m almost positive. My luck with getting roosters honestly..) I’m pretty positive I’ll keep him/her either way, but I’d love another opinion. 3C9F95C0-DC07-4F80-8984-9A068354B0F7.jpeg 814532A5-15BC-4E64-9498-C382EE39699B.jpeg 7F8152F8-C115-4BE0-910D-7DE6AE777532.jpeg C4DEB05E-0023-4971-AE26-0C6AD9C8A754.jpeg

    Everything but the pointy tail feathers looks like a pulley to me. I’m only sort of confused lol.

    That's a pullet. Tail feathers aren't a reliable way to sex them when they are young.

    Brahma can be slow developers... I say cockerel... though I can't make out saddle feathers in your pics... and your hackle feathers appear more rounded than pointy. But I can never really judge by those. How many weeks old? What I can make out of the face looks very pale still.

    I guess I'm like you! :p

    The indicators I can see say female but my brain says boy. :pop

    The Brahma is roughly 4 months old.
    This is my hatchery light brahma cockerel (supposed to be pullet) at the same age, possibly give a month.

    I think pullet, too, but good pictures of the comb and face would help.

    Here’s her face and closer to her tail feathers.
