    I'm new to chickens and recently purchased 4 dark brahma chicks. The gentleman I bought them from said he was pretty sure they were all pullets. I'm getting nervous because we cannot have roosters in my neighborhood & I am already getting attached to the little girls (I hope). They are only 2 weeks old but wondered if anyone has any input.[​IMG]

    Way too young to tell. At this age any guess is 50/50.
