    These were hatched the first week of August, suppose to have all hens but I am not too sure about this one.

    I would say rooster from the coloring and comb. I think you have a Dark Brahma there, not a Light Brahma.

    You might want to see if you can get better side pictures, but with that much red in the face/comb/wattles at 11-12 weeks, would guess roo from the head picture.

    I just realized they were dark, didn't look so dark on the phone. I will get better photos. Veer I have been wondering about why he was different from the other light brahmas they sent in the same shipment

    Looks like cockerel because of the comb + wattles.
