    I have ten bantam buff brahmas that hatched May 1st. I have noticed that one of them has lighter feathers and I was just wondering do you think it is a bantam light brahma???
    Here are some pictures:

    Here are some pictures of it at 4 weeks old. So what do you think.... is it a light brahma or a buff brahma who is very light??
    I am starting to think that it is a male.......

    I have a light brahma. She was the prettiest lemon yellow color from day one. Then developed white wings. Now at 3 weeks she's mostly white.Never did have any brown on her.
    She's also not a bantam though so maybe they are different?
    I also have a dark brahma. But I loooove the buff brahmas!
    My neighbor has one and I am thinking of asking him if he wants to sell her to me.

    That one doesn't even look at all like my Buff Brahma did. I think yours is either just oddly colored or a cross.

    She's a light. My guess is she'll have a bit too much black markings on her back when she finishes feathering out. I have one very light buff colored hen, but even she had more buff to her as a chick.

    Cute little thing, but unusual color for a light or buff. Post pics as she grows so we can see what she turns into.
