    A month ago I got chicks, one of which was a Light Brahma. Or at least I thought so...
    Just barely I was looking at pictures of Light Brahmas, and I saw several chick pictures with yellow chicks with black on them. Mine was yellow all the way. So that got me wondering, Is she a Light Brahma?
    This is her when she was a few days old.

    Looks like a light brahma from what I can see.
    What kind of comb?
    I have Columbian pattern in a different breed and they are always pure yellow as chicks in down.

    I can't really tell, but it looks like a rose comb.
    I'm sure she's a Brahma, I just want to make sure the color is right.
    Though I guess it will be fun to have a surprise, too!
    She's starting to look like a Light, though. IMG_20180310_213306347.jpg

    Chick down color is wrong for a Light Brahma.

    The down color has me a little stumped but she's feathering out to look like a light brahma..maybe she will look like a broken pattern light brahma-ish, if that makes sense, lol.

    Looks like a light brahma to me. Here's my light as a chick and the most recent I have of her.

    Pretty sure that settles it, light brahma with very light down color
