    [​IMG] I have a buff brahma that hatched on june 20th. He/she is the first brahma I have owned. He/she hasn't crowed. He/she has more feather on the feet than my other one and more of a comb. My dominant roo has no problem with he/she just ignores him/her. Here is a pic.Thanks to my Daughter. I couldn't get him/her to stand still long enough. Thanks in advance for any posts. [​IMG]

    That's a girl, and I'm surprised she isn't laying with that comb. She'll lay any day now if she isn't already and you've just missed them. ;)

    All my chickens are brown egg layers so she might jus blend in. I haven't caught her on the nest yet. But, they all free range. My daughter was hoping roo.

    It's a girl :) mine hatched around the same time she did and mine started laying a little bit ago right after i got rid of about nine roosters that I had been planning to get rid of and right after that I switched feeds to a laying crumble from pellets and got them some extra oyster shell they started laying right away! :D
