    Can anyone tell me when a Light Brahma Chick will start to get feathers on their feet. My chicks hatched yesterday - 19 in all but I am not sure when they should start getting feathers![​IMG]

    Your true Light Brahmas chicks should be born with feathered feet right out of the egg, I have hatched almost 200 LB's from my (non hatchery stock) and they were all born with heavily feathered feet from the git-go.

    Thank You Al for the info. Unfortunately none of mine came out of the shell with feathers so I probably do not have any.

    Quote:I think your right................... tell me more about the egg's and where they came from. perhaps the breed ID was wrong.
