    hi i have te same dilemma , i was given a mum and 2 chicks 6wks ago, they are now 15wks old and are free ranging with the others but they still follow mum around and sleep in the same nest box [​IMG] but i cannot determin what sex they are [​IMG]the only diff is one is slightly darker in colour, combs and wattles are pink on both ,with my other chickens i knew well before this what they were! the cocks combs were larger and red ! but these are same size etc [​IMG] ive not noticed my other cocks peck 1 more than the other and no crowing.

    Pictures of my Light Brahmas. They are approx 6 weeks old. I know I have at least 1 pullet, and at least 3 are definite cockerels. I don't know about the other 2.
    The hen is one of my mutts who is injured, so she's hanging out with the babies. [​IMG]
