She is a single comb brahma but you could put her back to a pea comb black brahma rooster or gold birchin rooster with pea comb and get pea combed offspring, they will just be split for single comb but appear pea combed except the combs will be larger and more irregular. Then back cross your pea split blade comb offspring to a pea combed brahma or back to each other to get pure pea combs as well as more singles and pea split blade combs.

I bought her as a brahma pullet but as she grows out i feel like she is actually a cochin or at least a cross because the breeder i got her from had some black cochin as well.
I would update some more pics of her later as these days her tail stands right up (look more like a cochin) so i just deiced she is a cochin and would find a cochin hubby for her lol.
I think Joel's reply would answer your questions. But i read other thread on BYP, some even said even two purebred rosecombs would possibly produce straight comb offspring if the frequency of mating is quite long i.e. straight comb sperms normally live longer than rose combs, as a result the straight combs are still produced. These was discussed in the Wyandotte thread so not sure if this also applies to Pea comb in Brahma. I got 10 eggs hatched out a couple weeks ago, out of 10 i still have 1 straight comb chick.
So what colour are you keeping softnsilkie? I just got new colour brahma chicks hatched out and they are so addicted , i'm thinking getting my annual leave so that i could have spent time on watching them wandering around the backyard everyday lol.
Love to see some of your chook's pics as well.

keep the single comb birds to breed from, because brahmas were put to cochins to get greated footfeather, pea split blade birds came out in the offspring, and when two pea split blade birds breed they can produce - single comb, pea comb, and more pea split blade.
you can show pea comb or pea split blade, but not single comb as a brahma, but they are still good to breed from :)

hi could any one give more info on brahma with single comb and or brahma with single comb that looks slightly pea comb.. i have a few pet brahma that i thought where brahma crossed cochin because the gave me single comb type chics and also the normal pea comb chics?? i believe this type is not favoured/for show but are they still ok to breed from?as i have three i keep because of there interesting colour and nice type,but wasnt sure if i should breed them??will this trate be something there off spring will carrier though offtern when breed back again ect??please any info would be great.....victoria line i like this girl she is very pretty is she black or blk with silver or white penciling?? not sure if its just the light in the picture or not..i have a girl simlar to her and another one of my girls looks much legger not as plump and her single comb is much thicker more toward the pea comb..i must say she is still a very pretty chook even if she has a single comb and not a pea. i presume you purchase her like this or did you breed her yourself??

Right, so is she a blade split pea comb? Or she does not carry any pea comb gene ?

Parents with pea split blade combs often produce single combed offspring
