    Hi,

    I've acquired a new chick and am trying to figure out what breed it is (in this photo is about 6 days old).
    Anyone have any clue?

    See attached pict.

    Thanks very much.

    Thanks for the help. I can see where it may be a Brahma...... I was also thinking maybe
    a Wyandotte of some variety... just not sure.

    I can see how I would be a Wyandotte too... But I think they are darker when the Brahmas are more brown

    Well a brahma would have feathered legs and a wyandotte wouldnt.
    Could tell from pic if it did or didnt.
    Wyandotte was my first guess but ya thats a guess.

    Ok, the chick in the photo appeared to have feathered legs. I have a Wyandotte chick at the moment and as you mentioned, its clean legged.

    Maybe its a "dark" brahma or a mix? I agree that it doesn't look like any other varieties of brahma except the dark brahma, but I'm no expert.
    Best of luck!
