I think I know the answer but please tell me Maude is a girl. I can't keep her if she is a he
Oops sorry, that was dozy of me. He/she is 10 weeks
Rooster. Dark brahma's can be feather sexed. The girls have all penciled feathering.
Here is my dark brahma pullet at 4 months. She is 5 months and still has not turned red yet in the face or comb.
Your brahma also looks to be Cochin/brahma mix.
That's it!!! I am giving up chickens for good. I get too attached to them and they end up being boys. Is there no way it could be a girl? Pretty please?????
Also how do you know it's a cochin/brahma mix? Is it because of the intermingled brown feathers?
Quote:The tail and leg feathering and shape is Cochin along with the dark feathering. The head is all brahma. That is one beautiful chick! I could be wrong though, but I'm pretty sure it's a boy with the redness of comb and longer wattles. I'd wait to see if he/she crows or lays an egg. Sometimes it's very difficult to sex mixes. I hope I'm wrong and that's a pullet.
People kept told me my frizzle Cochin was a roo due to lack of feathering. She didn't start feathering until 5 weeks of age. She is for sure a girl with yellow comb and no wattles at 14 weeks.
A boy for sure and not pure dark brahma.
What a gorgeous Cochin/Dark Brahma boy!! Woweee, that colorful at 10 weeks? He's going to be jaw-dropping at full plumage!
Whatever he/she is, it's got a MEAN stink eye!!
Beautiful bird, though.
