    Can you have an all white brahma banty? I think I have one but I am not sure and I can't find my card reader to post a pic. I got her for free at a swap meet she was just running around and a guy said we could have her. She is very pretty but I am so confused as to what she is. I have been searching every where trying to find a pic that looks like her.

    There isn't really such a thing as an "all white" brahma. There is a light brahma which is white and has black on around the neck. Check out www.feathersite.com

    From what I've heard, they are VERY laid back, even the roosters. Sorry, I don't know much about them, but I do know you have a great breed! [​IMG]

    Just to clarify, yes there are pure white brahma bantams. The ABA recognizes white, black, blue, dark, light, and buff.
