    Okay i got these chicks from the local farm store. they are probably hatchery chicks. I have some concerns.

    First my brahma, this bird was sold to me as a LIGHT brahma. . . will she get more white as the feathers come in or was i maybe sold a different coloration of brahma?

    second issue. . .
    these two easter eggers are the same age. . . is it possible that i somehow got a bantam? the one is sooo tiny compared to the other. . . . [​IMG]

    advice? hints? general discussion?

    Tried to post a pic there but it doesn't seem to be working but basically it was a light bramah chick that looks exactly like urs so they must get lighter iv never kept them myself [​IMG] also u can get some chicks that are just smaller but the difference in urs is pretty significant so I wud guess bantam aswell

    I would be expecting more white at this age, but it does look like a Light Brahma. It might just be a poor quality, hatchery Brahma. Since Easter Eggers are just a mixed breed that lays colored eggs, there is often some variety in sizes. :)
