I thought she was a Cochin but after broody housing with my LF Cochin, I really started to wonder. So I have been looking online at pictures of the Brahmas I wonder if she is a Brahma? She has a very small single comb. (ETA - not Brahma-ish says my online research) She does not have the nice soft fluffy rump that my other LF Cochin has nor my bantams. Her body shape seems off compared to a Cochin. Her throat/neck does not seem Cochin at all. Her feet are feathered on the outside, the middle toe has a few feather shafts/bumps but very, very few. I do not have, nor have I ever had to my knowledge a Brahma, so .until recently *thought* she was a poor quality Cochin. By poor quality I mean compared to standard not that I am well educated with Cochin standard. I did not raise her from a chick, instead she decided she was coming home with me last August when another BYC member was dispersing her flock. (Sylvia followed me around like a dog she still does and pecked at my pant leg when I stopped paying attention to her) I also did not ask her what breed Sylvia was, I just assumed Cochin. I have almost talked myself into her being a Brahma, but obviously I know nothing! August 2009 - Quarantine Today, January 7, 2009 - after molt and with chicks almost 14 weeks old. What is that? Hawk - took one of her broody chicks at 5 weeks of age. Now hunting small birds in the yard. Thank you. ETA again - the black water pans seen are duck bathing dishes, the ducks have finished their bath, I just had not dumped the water yet.
