I was wondering if some of you could give me a critique of my brahma pullets.
good and bad points, flaws etc.

These girls are 4 mo old, hatched in June 2010, im amazed at how HUGE
they are! LOL I knew they were a large bird, but these are larger than
I thought they would be. I really enjoy them, cant wait till they start laying.

and just for fun, my giant rooster, he is a cornish X that escaped on butcher day, so he is hanging
out in the coop.

How heavy are they? How are their combs looking?

So far I actually really like them. If you got them from hatchery stock - Kudos and congrats on such birds! They're still young though and Brahmas take a while to mature, so I don't have much to judge yet. So far they look quite proper, even their heads, but I'd love to know their weight.

Critique to the SOP? If so, These are hatchery birds. Lacking a lot of important traits. Size, width, color, type. One good thing is that they have somewhat ok coloring.

My thoughts.

Please be more specific, how big should they be at this age? 4 mo?

Where is their coloring off? how should it be?

and where is their type off? I dont think they are a rounded over their back to tail as they could be, not sure
if they will fill out more as they mature.

someone asked about their comb, here is a close up of one of the pullets comb

Id like more specifics since I cant learn if people speak in generalities.

as for the duucle, I purchased 6 chicks, 3 pullets and 3 cockerels several years ago, last year
I made my determination of which pair I would keep, I kept this hen and one roo and gave away
the others. Then this spring coyotes killed my entire flock in one night

this hen survived because
she could fly and got up in to the rafters. So now I have this wonderful little hen and no roo to
go with her.

Then I purchased the 4 brahma girls and liked them so well, I purchased 5 more pullets and 2 cockerels.
they are the replacement flock for what I lost.
