    When i bought 9 chicks from my local feed store the gave me a chick for free. It is a light brahma and she is now 3 months old. It may be that she looks so different from my other dual purpose chickens, or that she is a rooster. I'm sure at this age i should be able to tell, but i've looked at light brahma hens and roosters on line and at this age i can't tell. Anyone? thanks so much. Also she is just more aggressive than the others and well not my favorite.[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    I can't believe my itty bitty LB chicks will be that size in 3 months. Looks like a roo to me too-- they're hard to tell because roos don't get huge combs, but it looks like he has saddle feathers... any spurs yet? I know LBs are slow to mature.

    Look on managing my flock. Lots of ideas for re-homing and etc. This looks like a rooster compared to my hen -- those legs!
