    I have 2 14 week old Brahmas. The other one doesn't any red combs. Is this one a Roo? It is full of it's self. It's always picking at the other roos. It got all it's tail feathers plucked out the other day. Which sucks. It's the first problem we've had so far. I painted it purple and separated them. Not sure who did it. I'm new to chickens so this is all a learning experience for us. Thanks for all yalls help.

    He looks like a rainbow, especially with that purple butt!

    My 2 lt brahmas are the bossiest of my girls. They are 15 weeks, so I'm hoping they don't turn roo. They do the rounding up and will make themselves really tall and puffed up if anyone tries to challenge them.

    This is them a couple weeks ago... hardly any comb or waddles. I'm not sure if that is the best indicator, but yours looks more roo to me.

    Yep, that's a boy all the way. You can see his long, pointy, shiny saddle feathers right in front of the purple butt. [​IMG]

    How long will it take for his feathers to grow back out? I hate that happened to him.
