    I'm sure glad there is a helpful bunch of people on the internet willing to share their experiences and knowledge, it makes raising chickens so much easier. I'm hoping someone can reassure me that I have Buff Brahma HENS [​IMG] As I'm new to the breed. [​IMG]

    Beautiful birds, how old are they? Brahma's are slow to develop than smaller breeds. You can also post photos at "what breed or gender is this." It's best if you can show the amount /color of comb on each bird. In your photo two have their backs to us - can't see comb at all. Welcome to BYC

    Hi and welcome to BYC. My level of knowledge of breed standards is zilch, but as D/Diva says - the peeps on the gender / breed forum will be able to help out, I'm sure - https://www.backyardchickens.com/f/15/what-breed-or-gender-is-this. I'm not sure, but I'd imagine that there's a specific thread for that breed too - just type the breed in the search box.

    Best wishes

    G’Day from down under neecewa [​IMG] Welcome!

    Beautiful birds!

    I hope you enjoy being a BYC member. There are lots of friendly and very helpful folks here so not only is it overflowing with useful information it is also a great place to make friends and have some fun.

    You might want to also pop in and say hello on your local thread: https://www.backyardchickens.com/f/26/where-am-i-where-are-you ‘Find your State’s thread.

    If you would like to share more pictures and stories of your flock, you have come to the right place. BYC’ers never tire of these and do not back away slowly or commence eye rolling when the photo album or home videos come out [​IMG]
