Is it a Light Brahma???

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 

We purchased our roo from Atwoods last year and when trying to identify him (he looked like a penguin) we came to the conclusion that he was a Light Brahma Bantam. So i was on Facebook today and this lady is selling "purebreed" Light Brahma's but the chicks are yellow/white with some black coloring on their wing tips. I asked about the difference (which wasnt a pleasant discussion) and now I am confused as to what our roo is. Any thoughts. The picture shows him when he was a few weeks old and how he looks now.

Thanks

Linda

From him and a White Japanese Bantam the chicks came out yellow with black tinting on the wing feathers like the father. Any clue what they will end up looking like?

Most likely they'll look like the brahma. They likely loose some of the black, but basically be columbian patterned. Shorter legged than the brahma with feathers. And a little taller tail and most likely single combed.
