    I agree with Alabama Fly, you have a pretty dark Brahma.

    I'd disagree... this is my dark brahma chick, 4-5 weeks in this pic. It could be brahma... but I would guess a mix with those colors... Does it have a single comb? or a pea comb?

    Then probably a brahma cross. I assume its the blurry chick at the bottom of that last pic. ;-)

    @Frazzemrat1 Dark Brahma pullets and cockerels have different feather patterns. Yours is the pattern of a pullet while theirs looks like a cockerel. But since TSC isn't always reliable for pure breeds there is a chance of it being a mix breed.

    I was actually looking at how light the baby down was... My Darkie was dark brown all over, with the lightest on her cheeks... but still dark.

    I honestly forgot about the difference in feather pattern with the pullets and roos in the dark brahma... LOL had been scared she was a he! :-D
