    I have 2 beautiful Buff Brahma Bantams and they're almost 7 weeks old. I don't know much about sexing this breed and the pea combs make it even harder for me, so I really need some help with their gender please. Their combs just started coming in about a week ago. Thanks!

    I'd say the first one is a pullet and the second one a rooster.

    Going by what ours looked like at that age, I also think that you have one and one but the other way around. The first being the roo and the second the hen.

    Hmmm.... a 50/50 split on who the roo is. And I was hoping for both to be pullets. [​IMG]
    So who's the roo? Anybody want to break the tie?
    Also, could I get some feedback about why the opinions are what they are? Or maybe some pictures I can compare of brahmas around 7 weeks old? I've never had brahmas before and I'm trying to learn as I go.

    Thanks!

    I'm going to throw a wrench in the works and say they are both pullets! [​IMG]
