    Brahmas tend to mature later with their combs, so I would repost pics in a couple weeks.

    Well here s/he is at 13-14- or 15 weeks (I lost count) All my friends are saying pullet, but I really feel like it's a cockerel. No crowing yet though.[​IMG]

    Here are some more pics
    [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG] S/he has a SUPER manly cluck, is already the head of the pecking order of our mixed flock of 3 yrs,2 yrs and 16 weeks. What do y'all think? I heard brahmas develop slower though. Im hoping for a cockerel!

    "She's" a cockerel. The hackle feathers are definitely pointed. If it was a pullet they would be rounded. In my humble opinion, she's a he!

    Edited because I inadvertently said "saddle" instead of hackle feathers. Stupid me!
