    Wondering about the Light Brahma in the front of each picture. He/she is 7 months old. I think it is a hen, but I have seen it try to square off with my two roosters. Maybe just a bossy hen? **These two Brahmas are the same age.
    Thank you in advance!

    Thank you everyone! Appreciate! This will be rooster #3 (two brahmas and one EE).
    So far they are cohabiting nicely when I am present anyway( I have 17 hens and a fairly large coop and run area).
    Is there a reason why he is missing feathers on the back of his neck? TY in advance.

    Looks like some heavier juvenile molting... those big n fluffies can feather in real funny as youngsters. Otherwise another cockerel might've grabbed a bite of him.
