    Hopefully the picture link works, never done it this way before.

    So this is my fist time having chickens. We have 16 total and they are just the funnest. They are 3 months old now and I just am am thinking this Brahma is a Rooster, the colors are just so awesome and the tail feathers seem longer than the rest. This one also seems to be the leader of the pack. I really hope it's a rooster. We wanted all hens but this one has been my favorite and just happened to be the one we handled the most as a chick. Anywho... any info is appreciated, thanks.[​IMG]

    Yep, it looks like you have a rooster! His tail feathers are curving and he has the pointed saddle and hackle feathers.

    Wow that was fast, thanks for the fast replies.
    I am sooo happy, we thought about getting a rooster when they were 2 months but didn't want to mess with the pecking order or have any problems. Thanks:)[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]
