    I have 12 Light Brahma strait run chicks. They are almost 3 weeks old. Six have tails and wing feathers pretty well developed. Six have no tail feathers yet and barely starting wing feathers. Would it be safe to guess I have 6 males and 6 females? I know nothing is 100% until they are old enough to get adult feathering.

    Pics would be good but probably to young to sex at this point. Around 8 weeks would be better.

    Hi!

    Pictures of their combs, waddles, and full-body pictures would be awesome if available! I’d love to see those cute little things too! While 3 weeks is a bit young, it is still possible! Just note that they older they are, the more accurately you can tell.

    Hope this helps! Thank you!

    Brahmas can't be wing sexed like you describe. You're best bet is to post pics when they get around 8 weeks old. At this point, they're far too young to determine gender.
