    Hello!

    We are first time backyard hen owners and I had a question about sexing chicks. We have two Brahmas who were hatched the same day. One is still super fluffy and the other is getting wing, pin, and tail feathers already! Hoping that someone can help me sex them! If the one turns out to be a rooster, we will have to find him a nice farm home to go to since we aren’t allowed to keep him in our backyard.

    Thanks in advance!

    Far too young to sex. You'll have to wait another 8 weeks or so to know genders. It wouldn't hurt to have homes scoped out in case one or both are cockerels.
