    Need opinions.Ive never kept this breed before,I e mastered sexing Easter eggers only because they come with rules,I don’t think the three row comb with works for Brahma so I’m just going by size and color of heads and personality.
    I’m honestly just curious.Having a 10 pound rooster walking across the yard doesn’t sound like a terrible idea.Bird are all 4 weeks and a day old.

    163CAAAE-D68B-4A1E-925F-5BCAF046F4F6.jpeg The combs basically orange right now but large and thick.Wattles are coming in red.And very slow to feather compared to the (Suspected) girls.
    Buff Brahma Posisbel pullet?

    Light Brahma cockerel?

    Comb bigger and has three rows and pretty thick,turning pick.Biggest one in the group,very large and more aggressive then the suspected light pullet.
