    Hi everyone,

    Yesterday I purchased my first chickens ever, Light Brahams. I bought three hoping I was purchasing all pullets, or at least 2 pullets and 1 cockerel. I would like to request the knowledge of others please as there is no way that I can keep 2 cockerels! If it turns out that I do have 2 cockerels then someone will have to go back to the petshop tomorrow. Please help [​IMG]

    Here's photos of my new 3 week old chicks.


    Chick No. 1

    I tend to agree here with Teresa as the bottom one looks a little more red where the wattles would grow too !

    Regards

    Hi DrRob and Teresa-78,

    Thank you, thank you!! [​IMG]

    No. 2 was my big question mark... hopefuly if both of you think she is a pullet then so be it.

    If anyone else has a comment for or against then please respond.

    I'd say 2 & 3 are males, 1st is a pullet.
