    Tilly is a month old brahma chick. We got Tilly in an assorted bantams mix. Does anyone have any guesses on the gender, or color? Thank you.

    They are to young to sex for sure but there is no reason to believe they aren't pullets :).

    Dark Brahma. If the chest feathers in solid black, you have a boy. If there is penciling on the chest, and no patches of white on the shoulders, it's a pullet.

    Big black patches on the chest, white patches on the shoulder/wing area, and a very pink comb at less than 6 weeks old all indicate that Tilly is a cockerel.

    Thank you! I was hoping that Tilly was a cockerel!
