    My light brahma is huge. I am trying to figure out what she could be a hybrid of. She's the tall white one in the picture. Any thoughts?

    I don't see any photo, but am happy to take a guess once you get a photo loaded.

    The yellow and black chicken directly in front of her is my other brahma.

    Does the white and black one have feathers on her legs? if so, then she is a Light Brahma. If she doesn't have feathered legs, then she's probably a Columbian Wyandotte, Columbian Rock, hatchery-quality Light Brahma, or a mix of those breeds.

    She's has the traits of a brahma, however she stands 5 inches taller at the back than any of my other girls. I'm thinking she may be a giant hybrid of some sort.

    Brahmas are an extremely large breed or chicken, so that may not be abnormal. And some chickens are larger than others, just because of their genetics, health, and breed/variety.

    Looks like a Light Brahma or Light Brahma mix to me.

    Brahmas are a "giant" breed, like large fowl cochins and jersey giants. It's your other brahma who is off, not your white lady. There are no birds larger than those breeds except things like Aseel, and those are very obvious.

    Jersey Giants would be as big or bigger than the Brahma. And Langshans are supposed to be the tallest breed of chicken.
