Sandy,
I can only see one tiny pic? but the one I see looks like a pullet. How old are they?

I see the small pic but not the large one.

Brahmas are very slow to mature, cockerals will have a orangey broad thick comb starting and wattles, the pullets have a very thin pale comb and just a slip of a wattle.

Im having real problems trying to get this photo thing right sorry.
some of the boys are really obvious like honeycomb (the close up) but the others don't have any wattles growing that are noticable and the combs are flat to there heads.

I think that they are too young to tell just by looking mine took a while before it looked like a roo.

Only one I can tell for sure is the far pic on the right in the last pictures you put up and that is a cockeral growing out at that age.

The first pic, the buff on the left looks to be cockeral too. It just takes time knowing with Brahmas as they don't mature quickly.
