Nice to see fellow Brahma fans here. My teens (I have 8 11 wk old Lt Brahmas) are HUGE, and really beautiful birds. I've got a questions about roosters, though. I ended up with 2, the first one I suspected was a roo early on and the second one surprised me a few weeks ago. The first one seems to be maturing MUCH more slowly than the other. His comb and wattles seem to change colors, going from pale yellow/orange to a darker more red shade several times a day. Is this something Brahmas do or is he strange? The other one (Roo Magoo is his name) turned red around his eyes and comb, then wattles developed and he stays red all the time. Here's a pic of him: He's rather lazy, but a really nice fellow (eating laying down!) Another question is about color, or which is more desirable - more white or more black? I've got a few that have quite a bit of black, and a couple (I call them The Twins) that are mostly white across their backs (they are marked nearly identical). And one, Fuzzworth, is grey across her rump. The others are all white under their tails. This is Fuzzworth in the center. She's also a little smaller than the rest. This was taken before they moved out to the coop, but you can see the ones that are more white. And these are newer pics: And one last question... I've got one pullet (Snuggle Chicken) that seems to like to be alone. She has figured out a way to squeeze through the fence (the openings are 3 x 4 inches and noone else can do it!) and she stays in the pasture with the horse nearly all day. If she gets hot or thirsty she'll squeeze back through and go in the coop, and she goes back in at dusk to roost with everyone else. But most of the time she doesn't care what the others are doing or where they are. She is very friendly and used to love to be held, before she went out to the coop. Is it okay for her to be alone most of the time, or is something wrong? She seems okay, eats and drinks fine and all. I'm probalby worried about nothing! I'll try to get some pics of the first roo, the one that changes colors, this afternoon. And I'll also post some of my new Brahmas - I got 5 Darks and 5 Buffs a week or so ago, they will be 3 wks old tomorrow and growing FAST! I just LOVE these Brahmas!
