    I think this is a light brahma, but there's another breed it looks like but can't remember the name. Does anyone know? And are the others Golden Comets? How do you tell the difference between a Golden Comet and a red Sexlink?

    Not a light brahma- but cute! The others look like the perfect Red Star.

    I think she is a light brahma - she may have more black simply because of poor genetics but she looks a lot like my two light brahma's. You were probably thinking she might be a cochin but the feathers around her legs are too sparse for a cochin.

    I have a light brahma. The light brahma looks like someone else said, 'poor genetics' or she is a accidental mix.

    sexlinks/comets etc are also sometimes called 'shaver reds' I was told. They're all basically the same birds. Yours seem to have more white on their bottoms than mine, and mine had more white flecking around the necks. I don't know what mine are exactly either as they were rescues. I call just call them sexlinks.

    Thanks everyone. I wish I could remember the name of the breed I saw that resembled the light brahma. I'll keep thinking about it. [​IMG]

    Doesn't have the classical Columbian feathering, but a mixed light brahma it is.
