    Worst pictures you'll see today. I'll get better ones if necessary. I know these are terrible. Age is varying with the newest shots being at approximately 13 weeks.

    I'd go with pullet right now as the comb is very small and pale...I've had girls with thick legs.

    A better shot of the comb would help.

    I'll work on that. I seem to only be home in the dark here lately.

    I'm not seeing anything screaming rooster at this point, but this is young for a Brahma. A comb shot would probably clear it up, a triple row at this age would be male.

    Looks like a pullet to me. You need to trim her upper beak.

    I've been trying to decide between finger nail clippers and a rotary file for dog nails.

    dog toe nail clippers work well too. Just anything to start taking it down so she can eat easier. Take off 1 mm at a time if that's all you can do.

    She(?) likes it much better already. Also there's a shot of her(?) comb.
