    I have 4 Dark Brahma almost 5 week olds. When I ordered I asked for 3 pullets and 1 roo. Three of the Dark Brahmas look the same but the 4th one is definately different. Slow to feather and more white. Its personality is also different in that it's not the most social of the bunch but just hangs back and takes it all in before participating. I've posted some pics...



    The one on the right is the "different one. The others all look like the one on the left

    Your pic definitely is a young cockeral. Darks are very slow in feathering out and maturing. It will take a while for him to shed his chick feathers for his silver pencilled plumage
