    The one I'm wondering about is the white and black one. They all came from the pullet bin. Except for the rump of a Barred Rock, they are all are Easter Eggers.

    I'm guessing it's a light brahma, I have 3! These r very hard 2 tell early on! One of mine started showing "male" signs at about 7 weeks! Now @ 8 wks I see red waddles & red comb, whereas the girls don't have that! How old is yours??

    About 7-8 weeks old. Has a comb but no waddles. When it was younger it had a tiny muff like an Easter Egger so I am hoping it is an EE. Maybe EE & Brahma cross?
    If it turns out to be a roo I'm going to try to get the feed store to take it back since it was sold as a pullet & there is no way i can keep a roo in my neighborhood.

    Brahmas wouldn't have a beard/muffs and would have feathered legs. This bird is looking like an EE roo to me. It looks like it's starting to develop saddle feathers.
