    So this is a picture of our 12-13 week old Brahma. It's definitely doing a lot of talking in the mornings and evenings which is usually subdued by giving her/him food or letting it out of the coop. My concerns are that it's starting to sound a little more cock-a-doodley, its hackles are pretty pointy, and it has the comb of a chicken three times its age. What do you guys think? Are my concerns founded?

    I got rid of my light brahma cockerel at 8 weeks so I never saw him get that far but I'd say boy

    Our Brahma looked nearly identical to that at 6 weeks.
