    Cockerel.... hens feather differently and Brahma are slower maturing so even at this age males are not udeveloped in comb/ wattle

    One way to tell is to listen. I picked out my relatives' cochin rooster months before he crowed just by the sound of his voice.

    Brahmas are slow developing. But I think your 3 mos. old is a cockerel
