Thank you:) Can you explain why it appears they are both pullets? Curious.

I know brahmas mature slower, but I would think by now that their combs would be redder and usually their wattles would be more pronounced. Also their pea combs have one row which usually is a good indicator of pullet, cockerels usually have 3. That's not always 100%.

Thank you for your comment. I already have a barred rock roo and didn't want another roo. These two have developed their tail featheds so differently since the were 3 weeks old so I wandered.:D
