    Brahmas have pea combs rather than single combs and typically don't have as heavily feathered feet.

    i haven't come across to many white brahmas that didn't have some sort of shading or slight coloration on their neck or tail

    White Cochins. As stated Brahmas have pea combs and are not that heavily feathered down their legs.

    I believe that these are hatchery white cochins. The tails are not at all what would be desirable in a show bird, but they are beautiful cochins none-the-less.
