    Thank you! I hope so! I saw one trying to crow but nothing came out so I started to wonder!

    Can we get comb shots? Brahmas can be so slow to mature it's hard to say at this age.

    They look like twins, at this point in time - they appear to be pullets

    I'll try to get a pic of combs. They both have a dot on the backs of their legs which I'm not sure if it's normal or a sign of them being roosters.

    That is the beginning of spurs, which is normal for young male and female chickens. Usually only the roosters grow big ones when they are older, but hens can too.

    It's fine. Spur buttons are normal for cockerels and pullets. So that doesn't mean you have roosters at all.

    Now, I still think they look like pullets. Unless they change, you should be good.
