    I love this little girl but I don't have the slightest clue what breed. The person that I bought chicks from said maybe a Cochin?

    I think you are right!! And the person did say dark brahma so I got confused with another chick. I'm excited I've only had light brahma and the dark seem to have beautiful patterns.

    Plus, they can be sexed once the chest is feathered in. Males are solid black in the chest. Females are penciled through the chest.

    Great to know!! The person guaranteed they are 100% females but I know that's not likely so trying to figure out all the breeds and keep an eye on feathering. Thanks for knocking that one of my list!! Hoping she stays a girl as they look quite beautiful.

    Nobody can guarantee 100% sexing accuracy unless the chicks are sexlinks.
