    TSC sold me some straight run brahma, but I think I ended up with a cockerel. This one is larger bodied and has a larger comb than the others. What do you guys think? IMG_6163.JPG IMG_6162.JPG

    It does indeed look like a cockerel. How old is it? Can you post some pictures of the bird standing in natural light?

    Agreed, it does look like a cockerel.

    But, it is a higher risk to buy straight run.
