    I have a mostly black bantam chick, it is about 5 weeks old. Could I find out the sex this early?

    :welcome

    I do not believe you have a Brahma there. That looks like a cochin and a male to me.

    Wrong stance, wrong feathering and wrong comb for a brahma.

    Where did you get him?

    Brahmas have pea combs. That chick has a straight comb, so I would guess he's a Cochin.

    Also, yeah. Pretty sure he's a male.

    Welcome to BYC!
