Overall impression

Brahma chickens , thanks to the majesty of its forms and posture, can rightly be considered the queen among domestic breeds of chickens. along side Cochin chicken and Langshan chicken it belongs to the group of Asian giants.

An appearance of strength, caused by the superb size and therefore the massive shape of the very wide, not too low, very fully feathered, feather-footed body also as by the challenging posture and therefore the bold look.

Chicken are very large, stately, docile birds who observe reliable broodies which may cover an outsized number of eggs thanks to their size. The eggs are small and low in number but chicks hatch strongly and grow quickly. they’re slow maturing and take two years to succeed in maturity. they’re trusting birds and are easy to tame. due to their size, they are doing take up tons of space but they are doing not fly and may be let loose to roam happily within the garden.
