    How can you tell a buff columbian cochin from a bantam buff brahma?

    I saw some buff brahma bantams today and they looked just like that.
    Thanks,

    It's probably hard to tell if you aren't used to evaluating details about chickens like you would if you show/breed, but cochins are more like feather dusters, they are poofy and their tails are like a circular pom pom on their body. Brahmas dont have circular tails, see how in the picture of the brahma it ends like a normal tail? their feathering is tighter also. And brahmas have pea combs.
