    Her color isn't quite right, but she does look like a Brahma. Maybe a mix of buff and light or dark Brahmas.

    How old is she? Brahmas don't get their full size until two years.

    She appears to be a cross between Dark and Buff Brahmas. She's very, very stunning.

    I agree her color is beautiful [​IMG]

    I have a hatchery Brahma hen who is really no larger than my Australorps. They're supposed to be bigger, but sometimes you get birds who just aren't the "correct" size. My girl is a great layer, although her eggs tend to run more medium sized.

    oh yes she lays great and it is a medium size egg and just as sweet as they come. I have 2 others that I got form the same person at the same time and they look like a regular brahma and I saw a pic of a partridge brahma and she looked like her That's why I was wondering
