    this is peaches our buff brahma we got her from a neighbor and his other hens are alot lighter in color but peaches on her neck and wings are almost orange not buff? and now were not sure if its a hen. weve already got two roos in a flock of 14 and now not sure what to do if "she" is a roo. she also weighs more than our other hens too. but not much of a size difference just weight.

    Do you have a head shot? From this angle it appears to be a pullet, but I can't be 100% positive.

    And Brahmas are a large breed, so the weight is typical.
