    So I have had this chicken for over a year now... and I still am uncertain on what breed she is... Shes a heavy bird but she is comical in her mannerisms...

    Any help would be much appreciated... I thought she may have been a brahma but her legs aren't feathered enough...

    she is likely a cross, and looks like maybe bramha and wyandotte.

    what's the red hen beside her? red sussex?

    I was told welsummer when I bought her... but its quite unlikely being that shes darker... probably a cross too... she would be one of my favourite hens...

    Brahmas are supposed to have less feathering than most other feather footed breeds; only on the outer edges. I would say pure brahma.

    I agree with sonoran silkies and say pure buff brahma
