What are these? A trio plus a Large Fowl Hen.

Discussion in 'What Breed Or Gender is This?' started by TheJadeChicken, Feb 9, 2013.

  1. I recently purchase a trio from a swap. But the guy could not remember the breed, but they are from a hatchery. I forgot to ask which hatchery.

    I also picked up this large fowl hen and I am wondering what she is. I am thinking Dark Brahma or a Cochin. The guy I got her from didn't even know.

  3. No I forgot to ask. :/ I am going to head over to the OEGB thread and ask them.

    Thank you, though! I am very happy with the Brahma I got, I am glad I got my favorite Color!

    The Large Fowl is a Brahma

    not seramas, body shape is wrong, seramas also have short yellow legs. These birds have "normal" length legs, also the wrong color
     
  7. I posted in the OEGB thread and asked them. One said they are and even listed the colors. Waiting for more responses on them.

    Very pretty OEGB's, there are 34 varieties of them listed in the SOP (Standard of Perfection), can sometimes be tough to be 100% sure of the variety.
    Nice looking lady brahma.
