This is the only one in the group that i'm not confident with. I would say it is a boy but still hope he is a she. Your opinion would be appreciated. He/she is a splash/blue buff brahma and about 3 months old.

Many Thanks

brahmas are very hard till the secondary male feathers com through. best a head shot profile to see wattles and a back shot to see what saddle feathers are coming in. it looks pulletish to me but the bird is too far away.

Thanks Ruff, i have attached a few closer-look pics of him/her. Still not best pics as he/she is really not a cameral friendly one though, but hope they help.

Head shot! No wattle development yet, but the pinker face sometimes worries me.

Side shot

Saddle shot, he/she doesn't have any golden feathers on the saddle yet like his/her brother does. Not sure if they will appear later on but atm only white feathers come up as probably it is a splash brahma

Regards

I have three 7 month old Light Brahma so my experience with this breed is fairly new. However, this looks VERY much like a pullet to me. I don't know if this colour is the same as the Lights as far as feathering/maturing, but by this age my two roos definately had the beginnings of pointed saddle feathers and their combs/wattles were pinker than yours here. :thumbs:

He is now confirmed as a boy! very tricky one, fast fethering, body shape but then suddenly pointed feathers apeared and all looks more like a cockerel than anything. I would love to post his pics on, very beautiful young cockerel, quite tall and foot feather is so perfect too, very promising young rooster but unfortunately he is no longer in this life. Lost him a few weeks ago. Thanks everyone for the input.
Cheers
