    I thought this brahma mix might be a hen - but lately I am noticing a few rooish characteristics, like pecking at the ground and calling the hens over, a few suspicious hackle feathers and a very deep cluck! what do you guys think?

    Looks rooish to me (I think I am seeing saddle feathers)- I could be totally wrong. Beautiful bird though! [​IMG]

    Definite rooster (I see pointy saddle feathers and big legs and feet, also your description sounds like a roo [​IMG]).
