    Is this a partridge brahma? It came in a rainbow pack from mt healthy. Mt healthy does not even list partridge brahmas on there web site. She has a pea comb and is pretty much identical to our buff brahma except for color.

    With the lack of wattles, I'd say not a leghorn. Probably an EE with no beard.

    Quote:I thought the OP was talking about the partridge bird, not the black one. The partridge looks like it has a tiny pea comb, and I have several EE pullets marked just like it. It also has the petite head like mine. Not all EEs get the gene for the beard since they are mixes.

    more likely a araucana...can you get some full body shots from the side and front please and heres a link with a pic of a hen that looks just like yours http://www.cyndilou6.com/Ourbreeds.html
    some also consider these ee's. she could be a pure brahma but from what i read the rainbow mix could be any breed they chose to send and all the eggs will be different colors so theres no telling what you have there but its the onlything i can see that resembles yours it just lacks the beard the most ees have
