    I'm no expert, but I think the ones you've got pegged as cochins are actually brahmas. Do they have pea combs or single combs?

    Single combs are going to stick up more, and have little points in a row from front to back. Pea combs will be nearly flat, and have (if you look VERY closely at this age) 3 parallel rows from front to back. They'll basically be flatter than a single comb.

    Those "cochins" are actually Buff Brahams.

    Quote:I dont know about that one, but the brahmas shouldn't have single combs. They have pea combs. They may look like single combs now, but they look different as they get bigger.

    the golden one has a bigger comb than all the rest... so maybe the others are pea combed.
