    Light Brahma - she has feathered legs. Delawares do not.

    Delawares do not have solid black in their hackle feathers-those are barred in the Del, both male and female (and a Delaware rooster's tail is barred, too). They also have a single comb and Brahmas have a pea comb. They really look nothing alike except that they are black and white. Yours is a Lt. Brahma.
