Finally I have sexed the Reds! It’s SO hard to sex young birds (unless you breed Dark Brahmas, the girls have eye-liner and the boys don’t).
So, what are they? We have three boys and one girl. They are stunning birds. They featherd up much faster than other Brahmas I have bred. The easiest way to tell these boys from the girl was the comb and the tar brush tail, but it still took me eight weeks. These little chaps have such wonderful natures – they are so laid back I’m surprised they don’t keep falling over.

And here are the rest of our boys – all so cute – I want to keep them all – sadly two will have to go. If you’re interested in one, get in touch.
