    hi guys!

    our flock is getting older and now comes the fun part where we try to guess the sex of our babies... maybe you guys could give us a little help!

    also, i have a chick that i'm not sure which breed is; we've been told she was a brahma dark, but somehow she doesn't look like any pics i could find of that breed at that age...

    Here is our "Blueberry" (don't mind "Milkie Way" in the background, she is so curious!) :

    So, is she really a brahma dark? and is she a "she" or a "he"?

    What about "Happy Feet":
    [​IMG]
    we were told she was an ameraucana blue... Is she? and "he" or "she" ?


    And last but not least, "Buffy", our Brahma Buff... "he" or "she"?

    thanks a lot! [​IMG]

    Bonjour Floc Quebecois!

    Bleuberry looks like a Cochin rather than a Brahma.
    I cannot enlarge the photo on Happy Feet so I am of no help there.
    I am not sure on Buffy either. My Dark Brahma got a really red comb very early on and she is definitely a girl. Buffy seem some how feminine but I really am not sure. Could you please share how old they are? Maybe that would help. And perhaps a standing picture of Buffy so we can see her legs and stature.

    What a nice mix of breeds you have!

    and here another one of Happy Feet with Blueberry:

    as for they age, Buffy should be around 8-10 weeks and Blueberry and Happy Feet, 4-6... Sorry I can't be more specific: the breeder we got them from was really bad at keeping up with his chicks... [​IMG]

    thanks a lot for your help!

    I think Buffy is a girl. I had a buff brahma banty that we thought was a roo for the longest time, but grew up to be a little girl. I cant really tell witht he others though.
    I think dretd is right about blueberry, dark brahmas have silver on them, Im thinkin a golden laced cochin.
    Good luck!!
