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.
