    Hi all,

    This is a picture of our brahma (Megatron) age 12 weeks (we believe) can anyone put us out of our misery and tell us whether it's a boy or girl?[​IMG]

    hard to tell cant see the tail or wings or even the face. at that age thou if the tail feathers are curlled down a bit it shud be a roo. hens go out roos kinda curl down. (usually the first visual sign) at least as far as ive found. lights are harder than darks cause the hen looks nothing like the roo. my profile pic is a dark brahma roo 4 months old.

    We need a better pic. A nice profile shot, including legs and head, and a close head shot if possible showing the comb.

    Try getting someone to hold her and take the pic, or the other way around, from there.
