    I have been using google to find pictures of both and for both I am seeing the same pics of a large white bird with black at the end of the tail feathers and black & white around the neck. Can someone post pics of each? I'm getting some Columbian Wyandotte chicks and looking for some Brahma chicks (I want both) - so I'm trying to be sure what's what. [​IMG]

    It's pretty easy to tell them apart. Brahmas have feathered legs and wyandottes don't.

    Quote:There is a difference

    Brahmas will be taller, have PEA combs, and feathered feet and as chicks they will be solid white.

    Col Wayndottes will have a flatter stance than a tall upright stance and they have rose combes and clean leggs and as chicks the are a cute smokey grey color, not solid white.

    So, pardon my newbie-ness, the feathering on their bodies as adults, is very similar? Interesting!
    Speaking of feathered legs, do chickens with feathers on their legs and/or feet require any additional care?

    A Clint,
    I know you know that Brahmas have a Pea Comb and not a Rose comb BUT I just had to say I finely caught a typo that you did on a breed description.

    Quote:Yes Both breed have the same adult feathering pattern that is genetically called Light Columbian, some just go by Light ( Light Brahmas or Light Sussex) and some go by Columbian ( Columbian Wyandottes or Columbian Rocks) but its the same color.

    And feather footed breeds may be harder to keep the feathering clean when it rains, but unless you are showing, its not big deal.
