    Hi, I ordered nine chickens from MPC about two weeks ago. Three of which were supposed to be Light Brahmas, and although I'm sure they're Brahmas (legwarmers!), I am starting to wonder whether or not they're going to feather out as the Light Brahmas I ordered. What do you guys think?

    When Dotte was about one week old:

    And Ida:

    And Dotte again:

    At two weeks, Dotte:

    Ida at two weeks:

    I'd put up pictures of Perch, the third Brahma, but she basically looks identical to Ida.

    I'm not sure. My light brahma was completely yellow as a chick. As she got older she had some dark feathers in her wings and then after she feathered in completely she had the white feathers with black around her neck and in her tail. Sorry that was not much help...maybe someone else with more experience with the breed will come along.

    Here's my light brahma as a chick. Feathers really go through a lot of changes as they age.

    This is the same bird as that chick photo...I think I took it over a month or so ago and this chick hatched in mid March.

    I'm not sure our LB is a great example of a LB. She has gotten huge in the last month though. I'll try to snap a pic later this week.
