    Hey guys and good afternoon. I am pretty new to the whole chicken farming thing. I bought 10 chicks from tractor supply about 5 months ago. I bought 4 Brahma straight runs 3 RI red pullets and 2 straight run sex linked something lol. For a while I thought I had only one Cockrel and 3 Brahma pullets. If you guys could help me figure this out I'd be very greatful. IMG_20191110_162039303.jpg IMG_20191110_160715268.jpg

    x2. The Brahma are cockerels. They have male feathering e.g pointed saddle feathers whereas females have rounded.

    I really love the Brahma look and was hoping to take the largeness of the Brahma and breed it with another big chicken to make really big chickens. Anyone know if it's a good idea to breed my brahmas with my reds?

    You can breed them. I have jersey giant roosters and crossed them with all my hens/pullets.
