    Long story short, we had a small coop and 4 chickens given to us we fell in love with them and purchased 4 more "hens" we are not sure of the gender or the breed of the white one, we think its a brahma if anyone could help.

    Thank you so much! I picked him out because he was so pretty, I forgot the boys are usually prettier. LOL. We thought he was a girl until last week when he started crowing.

    I agree, he's either a hatchery-quality Brahma or a Brahma mix.
