Hi there, we have a now 20 week silver laced dark brahma, that we were assuming is a pullet. We have not been able to gauge her gender by her colorations as this was the first time the breeder had bred her silver laced brahma rooster with a dark brahma. I am praying she is a she, because she is lovely. I did notice today that back by her very round tail and other feathers that she does have some skinnier feathers coming in. They don't look really thin like traditional saddle feathers, so I am curious, do females also have thinner feathers that come in by the tail? All of her other feathers are very rounded, and no sign yet if any regular rooster tail feathers coming in, and no thin feathers at the neck. She's also not been slow to feather out at all. Thoughts? Here's a pic of her behind and side view.
