    Can anyone help me. I got these as day old chicks not knowing what they were. They've grown to be stunning! But I have no idea what they are. And I'd like to get more! They're big birds. Weighing about 4.2 kgs each. Any help would be awesome. From an English member.

    Feathered legs? If so, she's a Cochin.

    She is either a buff brahma or a brahma cross, as some things about her are slightly off- legs are sparsely feathered(could be variation in a purebred, however it is very typical of feather leg to clean leg cross) and the buff color is a bit dark plus not much black on neck(usually a good amount of black on brahma necks). But then I am not familiar with how brahmas look in your country, that is why I hesitate a little bit.

    If she were on this side of pond I'd be more confident in saying she is buff brahma crossed with New Hampshire or something like red sex link(hybrids bred for high production of brown eggs).

    I agree, beautiful bird and garden, however typical it is of English garden.
