    We got some eggs from a local farmer last year and was from a mixed flock. After looking at many different pictures to figure out what they were, we think Light Brahmas. Are we Right?? [​IMG]

    they could possibly be lt. brahmas. What type of comb do they have, a pea comb?

    The one on the bottom might be a buff orp.

    They have alot of dark feathers on there wings and back, they might have some dark brahma in them as well. Could be a Light/Dark cross. Just my thoughts, I could be wrong.

    I would say light brahma cross. Normally the back and sides are white not flecked like yours are.

    This was my first thought as well, due to the pencilling. (Light/Dark Cross). Or, they could just be hatchery strain Lights, as they tend to have more black than the standard calls for.​
