Dark Brahma Chickens are known for their large size, feathered feet, and winter laying abilities. Introduced to the United States in the 1850’s, these chickens helped to ignite a nationwide love for poultry.
Brahma’s are best suited for northern climates, and in fact, most of their brown eggs per year are laid during the months of October to May or an average of 3-5 per week. Brahmas are slow to mature, make dedicated mothers, and are also excellent for roasting due to their very large size.
Average mature weight: roosters 12 lbs., hens 9 1/2 lbs
