    These chicks are 3 weeks old. They are all supposed to be light Brahma bantams.

    The two darker ones were always much larger than the light one, but they had sort of the same markings for the first week. Now, not so much.

    The options are light, dark or buff brahma.
    They look most like partridge brahmas...but those weren't even listed as available.
    Any help appreciated!

    I dont know much about the breed, but they might still all be LBBs. Ive had two chickens that looked nothing alike but turned out to be the same breed before.

    Possibly dark brahmas; definitely not buff or partridge. The lighter one may be a light brahma, but that doesn't quite fit.

    I do not see a light brahma in that group. And the two bigger ones look different from the one on the left. This is a light brahma at 3 weeks old

    This is her at 11 days old..you can see the distinct pattern on the wings. But they have no stripes on their back like yours on the left appears to have. The eye markings are no no for a brahma too.

    Great looking chicks but they are not light brahmas.

    I dont' know anything about bantams but they don't look anything like my Standard light brahmas. Except of coarse the foot feathering.

    THE DARK 2 ON THE RIGHT LOOK LIKE PARTRIDGE COCHINS. THE 1 ON THE LEFT LOOKS COCHIN BUT I AM NOT FAMILIAR WITH ANY NORMAL COLORING OF COCHIN THAT LOOKS THIS WAY.... MUTT COCHIN MAYBE?
