    We could really use some help. We got an exotic mystery chick when we ordered our chicks this year. We think it's a dark brahma but no idea if it's a pullet or cockerel. Any hepl would be appreciated, this is the only one without a name. Thanks![​IMG]

    Well, it does look like a dark brahma. As far as the sex, I am not sure?? I am leaning towards roo...if it has a lot of penciling in the wings, it's a pullet. Hopefully someone can correct me if I am wrong!

    I'm guessing it's about 5-6weeks old?

    I am a little puzzled..the last pic looks pullet to me, but that top one makes me scratch my head and say Roo. I think I am still leaning towards Roo.

    I thought i was a roo but now the wing feathers are looking a little more penciled as they come in. Maybe it's still too little to tell yet, we have been calling her/him little feather pants, lol, guess that will stick until we can tell for sure

    That's what I thought, too! I should just ignore the top pic and settle on that last pic ;) She just might be a pullet. :D I hope so for you! She looks like she will grow into a beautiful gal!
