lol.... i have been raising a "RIR" and a "buff orpington" for five weeks now... wondered why the orpington had color...... um. . yeah i was told i had a new hampshire red and a buff brahma...

what is a buff brahma? i rearranged my flock to have almost all buff orpington hens, and now i dont have a rooster... yikes...

are these similar? pretty? are they big?

thanks

yes, buff brahmas r feather footed. here is a pic of my girl buffy she just started to lay and is about 5mths old. as u can see by the silkies in the back pen she is a big pullet and she is not full grown yet, i have to carry her in both arms she is a biggen,lol. her roo is 2x's bigger than her and i think when grown will be about size of a jersey giant not sure. he is massive in my arms i can't hold him long as he is a huge boy. i'll have to get a better pic of the 2, don't have any of him he don't like flash of cam. i'm currious to see how big they really get since they r so big already.

they r both purebreed and feather footed although u can't tell that on her in the pic when it's smaller. this may give ya a better idea what they r and they r a brown egg layer. they also have pea combs and neck feathers will be a thick black v down it with golden buff colored thin outline v on each of the hackle feathers, tail will have black in it and they have like a gray color on foot feathers.

what kind of comb does he have? i'm leaning more towards a hatchery stock bred buff brahma which would explain the no feathers on feet. brahmas are gorgous and very well tempered if that is what he is u will love him. mine is my gentlest roo and loves to be a lap chooky,lol. he is the best bird in my entire flock and so mellow.
hope this helps,
silkie
