    What breed is my Cookie? The hatchery said Americauna, but she has feathers on her feet. I don't think Americauna's have feathered feet. I can't wait to find out what color she will be.

    Cookie looks like a dark Brahma chick. I just hatched some out about three weeks ago. Very friendly chicks. If you google dark Brahma hen you will see how pretty she will be. Sunshine is probably an Easter Egger and Gypsy Rose maybe a production red? Not too sure on the last two.

    Cookie looks like she has a single comb which would rule out Brahma. Her legs also seem to be a little more heavily feathered than you would see in a Brahma. I think she's a Cochin.

    the barring colors, the feathered legs, the yellowish legs, and that big head and serious face = Dark Brahma [​IMG]


    Sunshine I say possibly an EE especially if from a hatchery.

    Gypsy Rose (hey I have dog named Gypsy Rose [​IMG] ) I agree with one of the production breeds or maybe red sexlink.

    Quote:they came from a hatchery, so even with the single comb I say a brahma. Every other feature points to brahma, that head and face and the pattern of the wings looks just like my hatchery brahmas did 4 weeks ago at that age. Hatcheries often have chicks with the wrong combs and patterns, as hatcheries do not breed for true standard, more production quality birds. Great pets, and they themselves say 'they do not breed for the breed standard and do not supply show quality birds'

    I love brahmas - any chicks [​IMG] they are all adorable and fun. Enjoy your chickies and have a great day Nicole

    Oh, I know all about the hatchery birds and how they mess up. I got some SLWs in that had single combs. I'm familiar with light Brahmas but not so much the dark Brahmas. She just reminds me of some partridge Cochins we got in. Guess we'll have to wait and see how she grows. [​IMG]

    Thank you all for your input! These are our very first chicks! I'm very much in love with them and the little hens love us too. They jump up on our laps and fall asleep or turn their heads to look at us. [​IMG]

    I agree with the others. She looks very much like our dark brahmas.

    We have one that is the lighter grey color also. Good luck with your babies!

    Thank you all! Cookie is indeed a dark brahma. Sunshine is an EE and Gyspy Rose is a Rhode Island Red. I'm almost positive all three are girls. They came from a 90% probability of being pullets. I have a really good gut feeling they are all girls. Plus, Gyspy has the stripe down her head as RIR pullets do.
