    I have 4 brahma chicks and I need help sexing them please. They're 8-10 weeks old I believe, with the black and white brahma being a week older than the rest.

    They all look like pullets, except for #1, to me. Those are very unusual Brahma colors! I especially like the last one.

    Edited To Add: I just looked closer at the photos, and realize that #1 is looking like a male. I didn't enlarge the photos when I looked at them before.

    The white one is a male and I'm leaning towards 4 being a cockerel too!

    #1 and possibly #4 are cockerels. Very pretty birds!

    Thank you all so much! Would it help if I posted pictures of them standing also?

    I really hope I have some pullets in there because I've been worried all 4 are cockerels. I think these 4 are just beautiful and I love them so much. The lady I got them from has been breeding them and working on these colors. I have a buff laced roo that I purchased from the same person and he's the best roo ever.
