    I got these two Light Brahmas as pullets about 12 weeks ago from Family Farm and Home. There is a significant difference between Whoopi and Lucy. Whoopi has always been larger and is showing signs of being a rooster. I'm new at chicken raising so would love your thoughts. Thanks!

    Lucy is on the left, Whoopi on the right

    Thanks for confirming what I suspected. I did not plan on having a rooster but am happy. He is friendly and we will continue to work with him in hopes that he will be a nice guy.
