    Here is my Light Brahma, "Peep". I am suspicious that she is a he. The delay in feathering and now we have a very pronounced comb and wattles are seen. Peep will be 6 weeks old in 2 days. The Americauna pictured is the same age, and the Barred Rock is 2 weeks older. Behavior: rises up on legs with neck high and has a "dance off" with my replacement Black Jersey Giant. After reading some of the other posts in this section, I am suspecting she is a he. What do you think about my Peep?

    Thanks y'all. [​IMG] I had a gut feeling about this and wasn't quite sure til I started reading the forums. Guess I gotta contact the breeder and trade him in for a her. No roosters here.

    Somebody cluck, somebody cluck, somebody cluck.
