    With those feathers on the legs, it's either a very poor hatchery quality Light Brahma or else a Light Brahma mixed breed.

    If you look at his tail feathers you can see some bared feathers, you should not have this type of plumage in a Columbian(light) feather pattern!
    He is a mix breed!

    I certainly am no expert but for what it is worth I would ask how old this chick is before rendering a duess. My three have had heavyt feathering on their legs since birth. but I have sceen Marins develope feathers late useually starting at the lower foot . I now have two Marans and my three Bhramas .f they were sold as Brahmas mpst useually you can depend on them being what the Breeder says they are at least in my experience.

    If you purchased them from a feed store sometimes staff can by accident get things mixed up.
