    Hi! I picked up a Light Brahma on Monday afternoon from a friend who said it was a hen. Then yesterday afternoon I heard crowing! I could not see who was crowing but I know it wasn't my Leghorns or Wyandotte. I haven't heard anything since. The Brahma is about 14 - 16 weeks old. I can't upload a picture yet because I just joined. I did upload a pic of the chicken to my profile pic. Hopefully it can be seen there. I will upload more pics when I can. Thanks.

    Cockerel, 100% sure. See those long, pointy feathers just before the tail that are starting to hang over the wing? Those are male saddle feathers.

    He's so pretty! (Why do I always fall for the roosters?! I don't like roosters... But I love them at the same time! [​IMG])

    Thanks for everyone's input. He has been crowing like crazy all morning. We can't keep roosters where we live so I will be taking him back to my friend's place today:(. He is really pretty!
