    Maybe I am too anxious, but I was hoping the two Brahmas I got straight would be a rooster and a hen. Now they are growing and I think I may have gotten very lucky!! So, since these are my first chickens, can all of you with more experience give me your opinion? Is one maturing faster than the other? Thank you very much!!

    Yup. I sure see some very red wattles on the one. Sign of a young cockerel.

    Your red birds are production reds. Should be excellent layers. Enjoy.
