    Hi all. i am new to this site. Looking for some answers. Got this gal at 8 weeks old. Now she is 18 weeks old and has not grown much since. so i am guessing bantum? But not sure what breed of bantum. Cochins have more feathering right? and brahmas have more dark markings than this girl. Can anyone shed some light on this? and also how big will she get? she is way to small compared to my light brahmas. and they love together. pic attached of her. [​IMG]

    Cochins have a single comb, brahmas have a pea comb. Your's looks to have a pea comb. Good luck with her.

    She's a bantam Buff Brahma. Size does vary with each bird, but the average weight for Brahma bantam hens is about 34 ounces.

    Buff Brahma Bantam. She should turn out to be a larger sized bantam.
