    I believe s/he is about 6 weeks old now? Not completely sure. I've read that Brahmas are easier to sex when they're small but from picture guides...I'm still confused! Maybe some of you could be a little more helpful :)

    Single row on a pea comb lends itself to female, but it's really too early to declare pullet with confidence.

    Roosters will start to grow saddle feathers at 8 weeks, but hens do not.
    I would check for that soon.
    Good luck! [​IMG]
