    here is my brahma chick who is 2 weeks old. she is a lot more calm then the other chicks and she isn't as active which makes me thing that she is a pullet but she is also smaller then the others and ive heard that roosters develop slower.
    it might be to early to tell but would you say shes a roo or pullet?

    Is the chick's picture taken at 2 weeks old because boy is it small and underdeveloped if so. Mine looked like that at 3-4 days old and by 2 weeks their body feathers were coming in. Do you have a side view of the chick? We have been able to sex LB by feather length, but we also have both sexes to do a comparison.

    do you really think half of them are roosters? i ordered 25 pullets and then tried picking the 6 that had the smallest combs. i think the brahma is a roo but the jg has a small comb and the orpington is the largest with the largest tail [​IMG]
    here is a pic of them so you can see the size difference

    the one you think is a golden laced cochin looks more like a buff brahma...

    The BR is a girl. The rest it's too early to tell. (at least for me)

    Seems too early to tell. I'm curious how people are choosing gender on all of them so soon. I don't know some of those breeds well, but nothing looks obvious to me.
