    Here is some pics of my flock. They were supposed to be all pullets except for 1 Dark Brahma. They're 8 weeks old in these pics.

    I'd keep an eye on that red one in the last pic. The comb looks a bit red for 8 weeks. Other than that, and the dark Brahma cockerel, the rest look like pullets. [​IMG]

    Quote:Agreed, the brahma is definitly a roo because of the solid back chest. And a side pic of the red one would help.

    Your Buff Brahmas look great for it's age, I have 3 months old girls and they do not have great feathers like yours.. All my chicks do is eat each others feathers...

    Thank you so much. This is our first go at chicken raising. We feed them Start n Grow Crumble Sunfresh Recipe by Purina, scratch grains by Purina as a treat, meal worms, potato bread once in a blue moon and LOTS of insects that the kids dig up lol.

    I forgot to mention they are all named and spoiled rotten by my wife who was totally against getting chickens, and my 2 kids lol
