    Can't tell from the distance.
    Those 2 breeds are easy to distinguish tho. Brahmas have feathered legs and peacombs and sussex are clean legged and single combed.

    Brahmas have feathered legs, Sussex are clean legged. I'm not familiar enough with either breed to help beyond that!

    JustAChickenLittle&More,

    Going by the shape of their heads they do look like Brahmas, but as the others have said they should have feathers if they are

    Quote:I was going to say the same, but you forgot:

    Legs are yellow with feathers and the birds have a straight comb they are Columbian Cochin. (although the birds pictured don't have the body type for a cochin)
