    I'm new with chickens and not very good at telling the difference with chicks so I was hoping you all could help me out. She/he is a 3 week old Light Brahma that is supposed to be female. If she's a roo I will have to find her a new home. I took some pictures because her legs are longer than my Dark Brahmas were at that age. [​IMG]

    Nothing here tells me anything yet. They are slow maturing birds.

    I don't see anything yet indicating rooster, so I say pullet. But they do mature slowly, so that could change.
