    I named her Lucy, because her face and body had a little more red on her than Ethel. Now it's getting redder... She also chest bumps with Fred the rooster sometimes, nothing violent they just bump each other sometimes. She seems a little dominant too, Fred still seems like he's in charge though.. Even though he's 1/2 of Lucy and Ethel's size and always sleeps between them, like they're protecting him! lol

    Anyway, here's Lucy!

    This was her about a week ago... She's the one near the water dish.

    Is Lucy a buff brahma? It's hard to tell by these pictures. How old are they?

    I'm thinking pullet... Just seems rather girly to me. But anything other than a single combed chicken can be difficult to sex at this age. :idunno

    Can you get a profile shot of her standing, including legs? Brahmas are slower to mature but I think I'm seeing shading on the wing that would mean roo.

    I'll get one in a few! I was thinking about that, because her tail feathers are a little different than Ethel's too... Ugh... I really hope I don't have to re-home her. I already love these little birds and so do my kids, but I don't want two Roos!! Especially since I only have 3 birds! LOL
