Dark Brahma chickens are gentle giants with feathered legs. They lay nice brown eggs and are winter hardy. The Dark Brahma chicken is slow to mature but are gentle and make good mothers. Be sure to order these early to reserve your Dark Brahma chickens. The Brahmas stand out in a flock due to their large size. The rooster can weigh up to 12 pounds and the hen close to 10. They are good for meat because of their size. Brahmas adapt to most climates. With their heavy body and thick feathering, they are very cold tolerant chickens. In the summer, if they have shade and water, they get along fine. The feathered legs and feet can collect mud in the rainy weather, and snow in the winter. Keep an eye on their feet and clean them if needed.
