    Hey all! Love your thoughts.I'm not an expert with sexing birds....definitely takes time. Is this a roo buff brahma or pullet? We are keeping Socks (that's his/her name) regardless. We were thinking roo.

    With those reddish patches on the wings, it's a cockerel.

    Thanks! We've gotten lucky with our cockerals; they've been very nice and good flock leaders this far [​IMG].
