    I'm 12 weeks old today and I'm a buff brama bantam. Can you please let my mom know if I'm a girl or boy?

    I'm not an expert on Brahmas, but unless their combs and wattles mature significantly differently from other breeds, that's a pullet.

    the only reason I question the hen part is I see a wattle and my pullet is 22 weeks and she has no wattle at all yet. but mine could be very slow.

    Is yours a bantam? Does that matter? My husband is taking the photos right now of the saddle.
