    Hello there and welcome to BYC! [​IMG]

    Yes, it is a bit young yet to tell the sex yet. The chick could possibly be a pullet as many time cockerels will already have a bit ol comb. But if you wait until she is about 2 months old, the sex is usually pretty apparent. Cute chick!

    Enjoy your babies and welcome to our flock! :)

    Brahmas are a very pretty breed and generally healthier than most breeds too.

    Enjoy them! :)

    Hi :welcome

    Glad you could join us here! What a lovely chick you have there! Fingers crossed that in a few weeks it turns out to be a pullet.

    Good luck and enjoy BYC :frow
