    It looks more like a Columbian Cochin, but the color seems a bit off. Hm...

    Maybe it is a brahma cochin cross. The way the tail feathers fall scream cochin but the neck and head look brahma. So not sure but it is a gorgeous bird.

    Where did you get her? She looks a bit like a Columbian Cochin due to the single comb and body shape, but the coloring is wrong. She might be a cross (like a Columbian Cochin X Buff Brahma or something).

    Best I can tell that comb looks straight, not mixed, so that rules out recent Brahma blood. That fluffy butt is pretty classic Cochin, she could just be mixed colors. I have to say, it also just doesn't look well in the photos, it's kind of hunched over and the eyes are dull and droopy. Has it been ill?

    She is not a Brahma. Body type and comb is that of a Cochin, but the coloring doesn't really match any specific variety. She's probably a Columbian Cochin mix.

    Breeding for what?

    I wouldn't use an unthrifty bird even for breeding in my backyard flock. IMO a bird that's been ill is pre-disposed to illness in the future, and I wouldn't want to pass any predisposition on to chicks.

    Of course, in my flock she probably wouldn't have survived...........
