    Hello all this is my first post! I got some chicks 3 Delaware, 3 Austrolorp, 2 Brahma and 2 Guinea Hens. They are about 4-5 weeks old I think. They were all supposed to be pullets but I think one of the Delaware's is a Roo and is the friendliest biggest one. I also am unsure about the brahmas which is why I am posting here. Can anyone tell if these are truly Buff Brahmas and if they are Pullet or Roo? [​IMG][/IMG][/IMG]

    You have Partridge Brahmas, and in another couple weeks, you will be able to sex them based on their coloring (not something you can do with the buff variety). Male plumage looks very different from the female plumage. Once the chest feathers start to come in you will be able to see the differences. Males get solid black feathers, females should have golden feathers with penciling.
    For the Delaware chick, males have barring (black and white stripes) through the tail feathers. Females lack the barring through the tail feathers.

    Thank You so much for helping me. The one bigger PB is so so gentle and friendly. I can't wait to see how large they really become.
