    I have this in another post. I posted it as my Wyandotte chickens drinking water. It was meant to just be a cute video, but it raised the question whether or not I was correct in my breed statement. When I bought the chicks I was told that they were Silver Laced Wyandotte, but Now I'm thinking that they could be something else.

    Perhaps Columbian Wyandotte or Brahmas?

    Brahmas have feathered legs, looks like Columbian Wyandottes. Nice looking birds!!!

    I think they are light brahmas I have two that make the same random funny cluck when they eat and drink. They are very nice and independent.

    Not Brahmas. Pretty girls, though.

    I appreciate the replies. We were hoping for Silver Laced Wyandotte since that what we thought we bought... but I wouldn't give 'em up for anything! We think they are beautiful and we do love 'em. [​IMG]

    I agree with those who said Columbian Wyandottes. Brahmas have pea combs and feathered legs, so that rules them out.

    And Silver Laced Wyandottes look like this (only with a rose comb. My girl has a single comb, which is not in the breed standard.)

    They look EXACTLY like my Light Brahma trio. Except the feathered feet, the coloring is exactly the same-to the feather!
