Do you have any recent pics of Sandy? I currently have Light & Buff Brahmas and I'm curious what they'd look like mixedI have 3 brahmas in my flock, a light brahma, a dark brahma and a light/buff laced cross. When I got chickens 5 years ago, I wanted chickens that would be friendly, easy going, and good layers. I chose brahmas because they were known as the Gentle Giants and light brahmas are known for laying well in the wintertime. My light brahma, Sweet Caroline, is one of the best birds I have in my flock. She is so friendly, wants to be held and snuggle, very smart, great with kids and one of the head birds of my flock. She has laid 3-5 eggs a week for 4 years but she has slowed down to 2-3 a week now that she is 5 years old. She lays the biggest eggs, light brown with dark spots. Every time some one thinks about getting chickens I always mention the light brahmas. All 3 of my brahmas are great birds but Caroline is my very special girl.

NorthFLChick: Yes, all brahmas have feathered legs and on their middle and outside toes but not the inside toe.
