    I have two Light Brahmas - just shy of five weeks old. I know what they sold them to me as - but what do you think?


    The one on the left is Dahli Brahma and the Right is Cleopecktra. Turns out she's aptly named - she's the chick in charge, and loves to be loved on. :D


    This is Dahli Brahma


    Sorry for the poor quality pics. Can't find my regular camera so had to use my iphone. :/ Dahli has been significantly slower on feather development from day one. Except for foot feathers - she/he/it has been ahead of the game in that department.

    Maybe keep an eye on Dali. Slow feathering is a cockerel characteristic. Compare how thick their legs and feet are, cockerel's usually have thicker legs.

    That one picture you have of Dahli's comb shows a lot of pink comb for a five week old brahma, would vote possible roo, can't see much in the other pictures.
