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 dry and are able to walk on well-drained soils. Part of caring for her and any feather legged chicken is to inspect her feathered feet to prevent leg mites.
