Is this a brahma?

    I don't have a pic yet, but maybe one of you can tell by my description? One of my chicks is a light yellow with blue/gray over parts of it's body. The feathers are coming in much more slowly than the other chicks (only first row of wing feathers are in whereas my OEGB's entire wings are feathered out). It has feathered feet and it's also bigger than all my other chicks.

    Also, it was in the bantam bin but what are the chances of it really being a bantam? Or are the bantam brahmas usually bigger than other bantams?

    No. I just saw your thread and that's why I posted mine, lol! Mine is a butter yellow with blue/gray on it's torso area (kind of the way lemon blue cochin babies look) and it's wings are starting to feather out white.
