    Just wanted to say hello. We live in Ohio and have kept chickens before, but now my 9 year old daughter is in charge :) We have about 30 Light Brahmas chickens that we started around the Fourth of July. Waiting for our first eggs :)

    Thank you! I'm actually trying to identify my avatar, as that was the mystery chicken from McMurrays. It's different than our Brahmas. I did post on the identify this breed thread, but if you know what it is, please do tell :)

    You're welcome. :)

    I'm not very good at guessing breeds but from the looks of it, that bird looks to be a splash brahma. Again, don't quote me on it.[​IMG]

    Welcome to BYC. Glad you decided to join our flock. The first breed I ever had were Light Brahmas (50 years ago), and they were gentle giants. The bird in your avatar looks to me like it has a single comb rather than the pea comb of a Brahma, so I'm thinking it's a Splash Cochin. If you haven't done so already, definitely check out our Learning Center at https://www.backyardchickens.com/atype/1/Learning_Center. There is lots of useful information there. Please feel free to ask any questions you may have. We are here to help in any way we can. Cheers.6
