    Those are light brahmas. I like them MUCH better than cochins. A really sweet, sweet breed, but not door mats.

    thank you!!! i had ordered buff brahmas from our farmer supply earlier this summer but they couldn't get them (he waited until he had an order of 50+ different types and by then, all hatcheries he had a relationship with were sold out). i'm so happy!!!
