    Hi there. I ordered 5 light brahmas with my chick order. I have never had this breed before. I am however familiar with chicks. 4 out of the 5 are the little yellow fuzzybutts with some greying and now that they are 3 days old with the wing feathers coming they have the white and black coming. ALAS one of the chicks has no grey or black anywere. The feathers coming in are white as snow. So is it still considered a light brahma if ends up with no black on it?

    I will post pictures if you need me to. Thanks

    Some of them can have a yellowing to their down-just lighter then the darker chicks. I'm not sure about the missing black feathers though...

    I am going to get some pictures if I can get them to hold still for a photo shoot.

    My newly hatched chicks were mostly yellow, with touches of grey here and there and fuzzy feet. They're now 9 weeks old, with the classic white feathers with black lacing... I've not seen one that's all white, though. Was this a hatchery order?
