    I ordered 8 Light Brahmas, 4 roosters and 4 hens. I lost one at 8 weeks from wry neck, though I wasn't sure what gender it was (might have been a rooster, but was too sickly to tell). So I have 7 left. Here's some pictures:

    Bird 1 - I'm pretty sure this one is a pullet

    Bird 2 - This one also looks like a pullet

    Bird 3 - Another pullet, I believe

    Bird 4 - Rooster, I think

    Bird 5 - Definite rooster as well

    Bird 6 - This one also looks like a pullet to me

    Bird 7 - Really not sure on this one. Looks like maybe a rooster????? Sorry, my finger was covering the lens. [​IMG]

    Thanks for any replies. I'm really not sure on Number 7, and the rest I'm just looking for confirmation.

    I agree with all your guesses, and #7 looks like a young cockerel to me.

    Bird #4 is definitely a rooster, not quite sure on number 6 though. Could be a pullet. Hope this helped.[​IMG] Good luck! [​IMG]
