Well, if you're looking to breed, the bird you have in these most recent pics, isn't the one I'd choose to keep. He has way too much black on him.
I'd go to a breeder and get birds. He looked hatchery quality.

Males and females alike, should be white in the body with black primary feathers on the wings, black tail feathers and black in the hackles. No black on the body at all.

I think the breeder has hatchery quality.
Some times you get some that are off...not every bird hatched is perfect. Especially breeding them. Like I said I had purchased the hatchery ones thinking they were pullets and hatchery pullets are a bit lighter so I grabbed him to add that black back in. She breeds them. Hatchery birds have a tendency to be too much white.not enough black.im aware of SOP for brahmas are...which is y I got what I got.
