    So, we got two brahmas at the beginning of the season...a light and a buff. They're beautiful. We named them Thelma & Louise. Unfortunately, the more we see, the more we think Thelma might be a roo. He/She makes this weird sound...not quite a cluck, not quite a crow. Any help would be greatly appreciated.... :)

    Awesome! I wonder what buff brahma and light brahma babies look like. LOL Or any other number of combinations we might come up with.
