Chickens are 8 1/2 weeks old since I got them.
i would say the all white one is guaranteed rooster? I have one brown one not pictured that crows.

This lil one has feathers on his/her legs. Im not sure what it is what do you think?

Welcome to the forums!

You're right about the all-white one, definitely a roo. I'm thinking that the other white one also may be a roo just on account of the comb being a little too pink than what a pullets should be at that age, and also that you can see the wattles beginning to grow...which you shouldn't see on a pullet as yet. Some breeds do develop faster than others, but I think that's a little too much wattle for a pullet of 8 weeks...but then, I'm not familiar with that particular breed (brahma) so I could be wrong if they're a faster developing breed.
