Is this a Dark Brahma and if so can you tell the sex?

    This was free from a local store and was in the "mix" box. Just curious what you all think...

    This was at a couple days old (chipmunky looking one):

    Any other tell tale signs that I could post pics of?

    Yes, that is a Dark Brahma. However, it is too young to sex.

    What age do you think it is possible to sex? When they crow or lay an egg or earlier? ;)

    by now you can sex it. Looks roo to me just based on the white coming in and the fact that at 3.5 weeks it is nearly featherless. I'm interested - can you post a new pic?
