    I have 6 dark Brahma chicks and 3 of them started to grow in all their tail feathers a couple of days ago. The other 3 have only started now. Does quicker growth mean they could be roosters or could they be girls? [​IMG]

    No, not necessarily. Brahmas are a slow maturing breed in general, so the feather sexing, faster vs slower feathering guidelines will not work with them.
    Don't fret, just enjoy them.

    Thank you! This is my first time with Brahmas. That makes me feel a lot better![​IMG]
