    Hi, looking for some help with these. I purchased these as pulletts but I now think I may have a couple of roos. All are just over 10 weeks old. 2 Columbian Brahmas, 2 Partridge Brahmas and 1 Lace Wyandotte. I can't keep roos where I live so need help. Many thanks.

    I'd say pullets, too. Beautiful!

    The one on the bottom left in the last photo may be male; not sure. Most of the rest look female, but boy are the colours off. I DO like the colours, but they are not what you were told.

    Quote:I agree. The top 2 (pullets) look like Lemon Blues. The one in the 2nd picture (pullet) looks like a Blue Laced Red, and the 2 others (pullet and roo) are the Partridge.

    Thank you for your responses. I have added a couple more photos - 1 of the bottom left and another of the white. These two don't appear to like each other which made me think they could both be roos. Appreciate your help.

    Those are not lemon blue pullets--lemon blue females have a blue body with lemon on the hackles and breast.

    I can't quite tell if the feathers are patterned or just smudgy. If patterned, they may be blue partridge.

    The darkest one is not partridge--it's a mix of too dark buff columbian and transverse penciling (as compared with the correct concentric penciling)

    They do have patterns, the one at the back has beautiful patterning. They are also more lemon in colour than they look in the photo.
