I received 4 lt brahmas who are now 6 weeks old. Should be 1 roo and 3 ladies. I read somewhere that the coloring on the leg feathers could be an indication of sex. Is that right? It was something like all white meant a pullet and black mixed in meant roo (or vice versa!)

All of mine have the mixed colors even though they were marked when they came--1 boy, 3 girls.

Also, all have feathered out nicely except this one--
and it is supposed to be one of the pullets.
This is a pic at about 4 wks. Just slow feathering or should I be worried??

You can not tell Light Brahma sexing by their leg coloring, the only brahmas to be able to tell male from female are the Dark Brahmas, those cockerals have different colored markings than the pullets... Your last pic is a cockeral growing out in front of the other. Brahmas are slow to mature, you will love them..nice birds...good layers in winter...
