    I just brought home what I was told was a light brahma however she looks more like a silver ameraucana to me. When we picked her out she did have more distinct markings than the other chicks. The only other thing I am not sure of is that it has fuzzy legs too. Any ideas for me?


    Thanks all!

    brahma's have feathered legs and if it was "ameraucana" it would have a beard and different colored legs without the feathers if anything it could be a mix

    It could be a Cochin too.

    It looks like a mix I'm guessing. With the heavy feather feet, maybe Cochin vs the brahma.

    A pullet too.

    Looks like it has a pea comb, probably a bantam dark Brahma.

    I really don't think it's a dark brahma. Maybe its a silvered penciled cochin???
    Here are my brahmas

    Let's split the difference. Buff Brahma. I do really think it's a Brahma. I have several chicks now that are light, dark and buff Brahma and they look like yours.
