    Hello!

    I just got back from a trade at TSC and was wondering if the sellers were accurate in the sexing. Brahma seems like a roo to me, but not sure. Also, third chick is a mystery breed, said it could possibly be an orpington mix. Any inputs? Thanks!

    Brahma - roo or pullet? Just over 1 month old, already has a rose comb coming in but very rounded feathers.

    Mille fleur - age is about 4 weeks old. Roo or pullet?

    And then this mystery one. Woman said may be an orpigton mix. Age is 2 or so weeks.

    Don't know about the others but your Mille Fleur D'uccle is looking like a pullet to me. From my experience, D'uccle roos usually have a pretty red comb by 4 weeks. Btw, Mille Fleur is just the name of the color pattern, not the name of the breed. The breed is D'uccle.

    The Brahma is looking rooish but I'm not positive. The Millie fleur looks like a pullet, and I think the mystery chick is an orpington or a orpington mix.

    I'll take a guess on the Brahma. At 4 weeks I was getting hints of the redder wing bar growing in and more waffles that I'm seeing in the pictures.
