    I have one just like that but mine is a frizzle. A lot of my chickens friends say that mine is a buff or a red Cochin bantam. So, maybe yours will too. Good luck!

    Thanks so much!! What is the difference between a Brahma and Cochin? Just different breeds?

    Yes they are different breeds. Brahmas have slightly less leg feathering, more upright carriage, pea combed, and are heavier and taller than Cochins. Where as Cochins are very heavily leg feathered, more round carriage, and are single/straight combed.

    Thank you for the help everyone! I have 2 more little babes. Are both of the yellow ones buff Cochins? Their coloring is a little different and their beaks are different.
