    These babies are almost 3 weeks. Does the obvious roo have a normal comb for a light brahma or is it mixed with something. They're just so different. [​IMG]

    Neither of these look like purebred brahmas. The pullet has a single comb, which isn't right. They should have pea combs.

    Also I don't see any leg feathering on the one leg I can see. Brahmas have feathered legs.

    Thank you. That's what I was wondering. Got them from a family members backyard farm so there's a very good chance they're mixed with something. Of course I have no idea what. Lol
