    The guy who sold this one to me today said it's a "big stock" chicken.
    He doesn't know what breed it is, and thinks it's mother may have been a "New Hampshire".
    I know they had "Silkacaunas", which they said are Silkie X Araucana hybrid I guess..
    As well as Silkies, Phoenix and they said they just sold their Araucanas and other "big stock" breeds.

    But, when I seen this one, and the feathered legs, I thought of a Light Brahma I have..
    Very similar.

    Does it look like a Light Brahma, or some other breed?
    Male or female?

    I asked how old it is, and he said 2-3 months.

    I don't think brahmas have single combs, so he's likely a mix.

    A Brahma should have a pea comb. Plus, you shouldn't see any color except the black and white on a light Brahma. Your bird has a single comb and some buff or light brown coming in over the back. I would guess it's a cross. Still going to be a lovely bird though.

    we picked up 2 "brahmaramas" (light brahma roo x ee) from a friend several years ago - GORGEOUS but they BOTH turned out to be a roos so we couldn't keep them (they were HUGE!!). Def had more of a pea comb tho. Would love to see how yours evolves [​IMG]

    Thank you everyone! Yes, with the golden color on her/his back, I also assume a cross.
    I'm also wondering about Brahma X Easter Egger!
    Also wondering about the gender after seeing some pics of the mix, and the comb color..
    I've been seeing some EE hens with dark combs. *IF* she/he is indeed part EE, anyway! lol

    (these are photos i've found on Google images)

    This is supposed to be an EE X Brahma hen:

    They all seem to have dark combs for pullets/hens - leading me to believe there is hope that mine *could* be a pullet? lol
    Oh well, if not, it's not too big of a deal I guess! lol [​IMG]

    Ccshambhala, yours/the ones in the pics are so pretty! Especially the first one. [​IMG]
