    Please help me out with these partridge Brahmas. I bought two with the hopes one would be a pullet. The one closest to us acts more dominant, and the one in the back is very submissive so by behavior I would say the nearest is a cockerel and the other is a pullet. What do you experts think?

    Neither look like a cockerel yet, they need to feather in more. Male partridge birds have black chests and dark red on the wings/shoulders.

    [​IMG] so here is an updated picture. I think there may be blue partridge in them too. So i am assuming the one on the left is a roo? I can't tell if that is gold or red on the wing.
