    [​IMG] I don't have a clue what this little chick is. I thought it was a RIR then yesterday I noticed it has feathered feet! I have Light Brahma's that are the only feathered feet and legs hens I have. Could this be a buff when all the hens and rooster are Light?[​IMG]

    Could it possibly be a brahma mix? Do your brahmas run around with the other breeds or have they within the past two months?

    [​IMG] I keep each breed separate from the others. The RIR rooster has been caught in the other pens next to his yard but never in the Brahma pen. I suppose he could have jumped the fence and gotten back but he usually doesn't go back until I pick him up and make him go home!

    [​IMG]If it is a mix do I dare breed it if it is a hen?

    [​IMG] My husband reminded me I want a pen of layers with no roo so if it is a hen it will fit in very nicely with the layers.
