    So I was on the fence but was told she was female. But now her tail feathers are coming in high and curvy, and it's reminding me of a roo!
    She's my only chick of this breed so I can't compare her to anything...except for online pics and I'm worried! Can some brahma pros help me out here? She is almost 12 weeks.

    No hen would have a comb that big and red unless it was ready to or already laying, its a cockerel.
