    Have 2 golden brahmas at 8 weeks old and want to know what sex they are. The darker one has longer legs a more developed comb and dark feathers. The one I think is a hen is light brown and stands more like a hen. Photos below.

    Well, to me, The first pic looks like a rooster because of the coloration on the wing and the slightly developed comb. The second one looks to be a hen. How old are they?

    Hmm, yeah. I think the first one is a rooster since he is getting his comb so early.

    That was my suspicion. He stands very upright too and has longer legs.
