    I'm noticing with my Brahmas that the males have long feathers on their hawk joints, which yours doesn't have.

    How old? If under 4ish months, that's a cockerel. Brahmas mature slowly and take longer to get the hackle and saddle feathers.

    Probably about 2 1/2 to 3 months old. I had 2 of these and the other looked the same except the comb was redder and thicker. Pretty sure he was a cockerel. So I thought this 1 might be a pullet, just going by the differences. It seems everyone doesn't agree on this one.

    At that age, definitely a cockerel.
