    Got it at TSC thinking it was a white cochin. But i took it out of the brooder today now that its bigger and i noticed it has a flat comb and not a single comb. Soo im thinking brahma...but do they come in white?? Its not faverelles(only has 4 toes) and it has no beard or muffs. It is a bantam. Solid white.

    Brahmas don't come in white. I think you just have a hatchery white Cochin.

    I'd say a light brahma. If your chick has a pea comb. If its a single comb, you have a Cochin.

    Here's my LB Melody. :)

    It is a light brahma. It will be columbian colored. Black around neck and tail.

    Your light brahma looks more feminine then mine. I'm hoping mines a girl, but I have my doubts. If melody is a boy, we're changing the name to mango. Either way we are keeping him/her. We picked melody from the pullet bin.

    There are not very many breeders of White Brahmas if any at all in the U.S. and since the op got there birds from TSC it is most likely from a hatchery and there are no hatcheries that I know of that has White Brahmas.

    I prowl the tanks when the local feed store gets their chicks. They order from Ideal and I saw 90% solid white chicks this year. They probably grew out Columbian but they started out solid white.
