What do you think?

**Disclaimer**  Yes these are feed store chickens, so not having a clue of genetics it could be a mutt from the poultry farm.

 

We picked up four new babies yesterday from the local feed store, two buff cochins and two "ameraucana" pullets.  Thing is I don't think this one is an EE or ameraucana.  "She" has feathers on her legs and her legs are also white, not green or gray.  She could have been left over from the last batch of chicks they had, but who knows.  Any ideas??

@CascadiaRiver I agree with you, it could be a Buff Brahma. Does it have "puffy" cheeks?

No puffy cheeks.  My  "Ameraucana" chick has puffy cheeks, but this one does not.  I'm going with Buff Brahma.  I just needed to be pointed in the right direction.  I've never had a brahma so had no idea what to look for.
