    These are the largest chickens I've seen.

    Cleopatra & King Tut are only around 5 months old and are supposed to get bigger...

    Are they Brahmas or Cochins or are there Brahma Cochins?

    And the last pair, are these the Mille Fleur d'Uccles?

    Rameses (the biggest)

    My guess is cochins, but I've never owned either breed to really know. Both come in bantie and standards

    Quote:No they are feathered legged but not on the feet. Feathers run on the outside of the leg and you can see toes.

    Those are Cochins and beautiful ones.

    Hi! They would be giant cochins since they have a single comb. Brahmas don't have a single comb.

    You can't tell because our grass is really high there, but their feathers go all the way down their feet.
