    Quote:It just means that hatchery stock don't have the "perfect" coloring like the stock you would get from a breeder, like from a breeder you wouldn't get the lacing on her back. But there's nothing wrong with it at all.

    There are some pics of Buff Brahmas here (which I agree that's most likely what she is). http://www.feathersite.com/Poultry///CGA/Brahma/BRKBrahma.html

    Quote:Agreed. It is very rare for a hatchery to produce a decent Columbian patterned bird, as they do not cull their stock. Most hatchery Columbians I have purchased have black markings all over the place.
