    My friend bought this roo and several other chickens from a gentleman that used to show and was selling off his stock. She was told he was a Dark Brahma. In trying to get hens to go with him, she noted that all the Dark Brahma pics are silver over black. This gorgeous guy is goldtoned. She and I have scoured pics and he seems to be Brahma other than his coloring. Any help for her is greatly appreciated.

    He doesn't look like a brahma to me. Brahmas have pea combs,

    Any clue as to what breed? I am a duck person and have almost no knowledge of chickens.

    I'm sorry, I am not sure on this one. I just happened to have Brahmas so I knew what to expect there. Maybe someone else will have an idea on that.

    He almost looks like he might have some dark brahma in him, and a lot of other breeds

    Hrm, what color is his legs? If it's pink or white, I'd put all my money on Birchen Marans. Not a very common find!
