    Hi, I am trying to work out what genders I have. Help would be greatly appreciated.

    They are around 6wks when these photos were taken.

    it should also be noted that the blush on the combs isn't consistent, it is sometimesa lot lighter sometimes darker, and in Aurra's case is getting a little bit of a purple tint to it.

    thanks.

    Ah, so nice to see people from out of the USA, and with colors of Brahmas we don't have much of. [​IMG]

    They all look like girls, honestly. A cockerel by now will grow out some deep red feathers and develop a black breast.

    All are females. Males of partridge variety have a completely different color pattern.

    I am trying not to rely on colour, as it seems they take longer to get their adult colouring in Australia. The man I got them from tried to pick me out three pullets and cockeral, but there maybe two cockerals. We are suspecting Aurra is a cockeral, mainly due to how slow she is feathering. She is getting feather shafts along her bottom now while the others are more evenly feathered.

    I really would love that I have four pullets however [​IMG] because then I could get myself a lovely golden crele Roo! Oh my heart for a gold crele roo.
