    I bought 4 Buff Brahama pullets or so I thought. They were all the same size now at 4 weeks old one is so much bigger and taller than the others and is kind of aggressive towards the others. Could this one be a roo?

    You have 1 cockerel, the one who has yet to fully feather in, & 1 pullet, the fully feathered one.

    I have never had a baby roo. Are they normally aggressive to the others smaller than them? the 3 others cower in the corner.

    I’ve yet to have an aggressive Brahma roo. Brahmas are a very good natured breed.
    I breed blue buff columbian, golden partridge and lemon Pyle brahmas.

    The largest chick picks on the others, one in particular. When I bought them they were all the same size 3 are about the same size now and the one is almost twice the size. That is the one I am wondering if the animal is a roo and not a pullet. It would be great if she turned out to be a he
