    Hello,
    I found these 4 chicks for sale in a mix with some other chicks that looked like hybrids.
    They look like Brahmas and where the only ones that looked like this.
    They also looked very sad and in not that good condition, the other looked all ok.
    Are these hybrids or could they be pure breed Brahmas? If so what variety?

    These aren't bad ......Brahmas tend to be a little(Well, actually a lot) raggedly looking until much older....They do need quality protein rather than scratch grain.....Since there are only four of them try eggs/white and yolk, milk, and greens if you can't get starter/grower....Luck

    I can't tell if they have pea combs or not from the pics. They also look to have pink/white skin? I'm pretty sure Brahmas have yellow, but not positive.

    They look to full , in the feathers on the feet to be brahmas and the skin color is wrong! I'm guessing mixes!

    I'm thinking pullet on both.

    They both are looking pulletish to me. I'm fairly certain my cockerels had dark shiny feathers coming in on their shoulders by this age.
