    Okay, so my family was trying to figure out if we still had any male Brahmas and if some of our Australorps are male. The Brahmas were orders 3 male, and 7 female and a cat ate 3 of them while young babies and we think a hawk got 2 of them while the 5 (We had some that didn't make it at the start) we had left were roaming for the first time. This leaves us we 3 Brahmas at 3 1/2 months old and a chicken person who even using other Threads on this website unsure of gender with these birds. The Australorps were bought as pullets but we are starting to believe that the store might have mislabeled straight run birds instead of Pullets as advertised. But that is the mother on that. I think we have one male due to it having had a very slow feathering (It got the nickname Ugly because we have never had a bird that feathered so slow.) We have comb shots of the Brahmas and random pics of the Australorps. I am holding the one I think is male.

    Those big combed australorps are roosters, your Brahma looks like a pullet to me.

    There are a total of 3 Brahmas here. Are they all Pullets? I forgot to mention that the Australorps are at 4 months if that helps at all.

    Apparently my cold is making me read posts improperly today, sorry. I would wait for a better opinion, but I still think the Brahma look like hens, and the australorps look like roosters at 4 months.
