    They are 9 weeks old, but look like bald eagles I have seen other Brahmans on this site and their better looking, mine are from Murry Mc Murry in an assortment.

    The markings on those kinda look like male salmon Favorelles, but I do not see any muffs. And I do not know what color brahma that would be either. Unless those are the beginnings of dark brahma male colors. Do you have any females that look similar that are cream colored? Or more lacey patterned?

    eta And the inside of the leg is not feathered so I think you are right and they are not cochins.

    They do not look like salmon faverolles. They look like cochins. Since the quality of the pics isn't great, it's hard to see what type of comb they have. Based on the coloring, and how you would typically not see that patterning on a brahma, I'm going to say cochin, that is if they have single combs. If they have pea combs, then they are brahmas.

    Wish the pics were a little better. Check the comb, but that looks like a dark brahma cockerel to me.
