    The Brahma looks like a cockerel for sure. Not as positive on the Delaware. Agree it's pretty red, but there's no size to speak of.

    Dang, looks like I possibly got 3 males this time out of five, I left out a pic of the Welsummer I got as he grew big red waddles and comb quickly and has a black chest. So much for the 95% accuracy in sexing the feed bin states it has...
