BRAHMA

Known for its impressive size and appearance, Brahmas weigh 10 -12 pounds. Brahmas are one of the largest breeds of chickens and take a little longer to fully mature. Brahmas initially gained interest as a meat breed.  Since then, they have warmed the hearts of families thanks to their docile personalities and friendly nature.  These gentle giants endure hard winters, are easy to keep (won't fly over fencing).  Their dual purpose and good mothering qualities make them a sought out choice for homesteaders.

PERSONALITY

Gentle Giants.

HISTORY

The Brahma is an ideal chicken for northern climates such as Colorado.  Thanks to it’s peacomb, down, and tight feathering, it’s known as the least susceptible chicken to cold and frostbite.
Brahmas are considered a superior winter-layer, producing  a high rate of eggs between October to May.  Hens naturally go broody in the summer if you want to hatch out some of your own baby chicks.   It is important that they keep  are able to walk on well-drained soils. Part of caring for a brahma and any feather legged chicken is to inspect  feathered feet to prevent leg mites.

SEXING METHODS

Several communities have laws in which roosters are not allowed.  The sex of a brahma being reliably identifiable by external characteristics on average is 90%.  Vent sexing as a day old is most common sexing method for this breed. Thus, industry standard is to offer as a female chick or pullet.  To assist city families, we offer with your choice of female coverage or DNA sexed.
