    It will be a few weeks before their sex will become apparent. They are cute though!

    As Tarabella has said, it is too early to tell just yet -- right now all that can be said is they are adorable! I would repost when they are 6+ weeks of age.

    Thank you both I was curious about them because I don't want either three males or three females
    For now lets keep our fingers crossed
    I was curious because I found this for silkies

    I was thinking something like that might exist for dark brahmas too

    Wing sexing does work for some breeds. As with any sexing method it is not 100% accurate, AND it must be done within 3 days are hatch. Typically females feather in faster than males.

    I have never heard of feather sexing for silkies, but I heard the pigeon toe sexing works fairly well.
