    I would say pullet. But I dont know why it barley has any black on it though. It should have a lot more black.

    Are you sure it is 100% light brahma and not mixed.

    I would say cockerel; that comb is quite red for that age. And, as CCCCCCCCHICKENS said, are you sure it is a Light Brahma? All Light Brahma adults, and young birds, that I have ever seen have had black on their necks and tails. Where did you get her/him?

    You know I looked at the comb again and enlarged the picture and I think you are right,I probably should of paid attention.

    Thanks. I got 5 chicks from jersey chickens.com they were all sold as pullets. And according to the sight they are light brahmas. I wouldn't mind but I cant have roosters :( and 2 are looking like Roos with your help the other was supposed to be a BO but turned out to be a CQ and you guys are leaning towards roo on that one too [​IMG]

    95% it's a cockerel but still there's hope for a female.
