    I'm seeking help identifying the sex of my two buff brahma chicks. It's not the best picture, but there is definitely a difference in their appearances: size, feather growth, comb color/size. I'm just not sure if one is slower maturing or I have a boy and a girl (hopefully!), and if so, which is which. They hatched out November 5, 2015. Any info is appreciated!

    The one on the right is definitely a cockerel with that big pink comb and dark shade of buff on the wings/shoulder. The other one looks like it's got some darker shading just starting to come in on the wings, it might be a cockerel as well.
