    So I have 4 BLRW and I'm very eager to know what gender they are. They are about 6 weeks old now and since I'm new to chickens as well as new to BLRW, I'm looking for opinions on their gender. Thank you for any and all help.

    Also any idea on my 3 LB? The 3 one is larger, but it was larger and I think older then the other 2 when I bought them.

    So in your opinion I have one Roo of the BLRW and maybe one Roo of the LB? I really hope so because I'm not allowed to have Roo's and my neighbors will not be happy with them, so I need to rehome any I the males before they crow.

    blrw-- 1&2 are pullets. 4 is a rooster. I'm also on the fence about 3, you'll just have to wait and see how it turns out. That seems to be a lot of comb for the age, though.

    Brahmas--1 is a pullet. I think 2&3 are roosters. 2 is iffy, but I'm pretty sure I can see three rows on that comb. Brahmas mature pretty slow, so you've got time.

    So male brahmas have 3 rows on their combs? How many do females have? Good info to know, thanks!
