    OK- I'm noticing that my 4 week old BR is developing a wider comb, that is becoming a bit orange at the edges, and her (his?) tail is much shorter than my 4 week old Brahma.

    Is this a breed difference? A variation in normal? Or is there a chance she's a he?

    CHeck it out...

    Those chicks look to so ready to be outside. I can't help on the question though.
    Nice looking birds. Mine have been outside since 14 days.

    Yeah, they are totally ready to be outside- one problem is I also have 1 week old babies.

    The other problem- which is more pressing- is that my BR is impossible to catch once outside. She's very flighty.
