    Looking at the comb and darker shading on the wings I'm thinking male. But Brahmas can be so slow to mature they can leave you guessing for several months.

    Yea, and for me it may be helpful to have single shots of each bird perhaps? [​IMG] Brahma and silkies have always been a pain to sex at times.

    Either way I love the colors!
