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.

We also offer at limited times of the year Dark Brahma Fertile Hatching Eggs

    Very healthy and cute little chicks

    Got my Dark Brahma chicks 3 Days ago and all arrived alive and full of energy. Ordered 1 rooster and 8 hens, 10 arrived. I was suprised they were so lively after 2 1/2 days in shiping. They were thirsty but didn’t seem overly dehydrated. After 3 days they all still have only 2 speeds, standing still and full speed.

    Light & Dark Brahma

    I ordered my brahas in March 2017 and they weren’t ready to ship until April 24. I ordered 15 mixed of light & dark and they sent 4 extra all chicks were great but 1 and it didn’t survive, but the others are great and still doing fine! Cackle workers are very nice and care about their chicks and answer any question you might have. I’m planning on ordering more this year!! Feel free to order your chicks here because you’ll get the best! Thanks Cackle Hatchery you’re the best!

    Quite pleased!

    I ordered five of the straight run dark Brahma and picked them up today at the post this morning. They didn’t make a lot of noise so I was worried but once home and out they were everywhere! They are so lively and are all over the brooder eating, drinking and pooping! This is my first time ordering chicks and I’m extremely pleased with the quality and customer service your company provides. I’ll definitely be ordering again!

    Very healthy

    Ive ordered dark brahma chicks last year and this year from Cackle and both batches have been noticeably more active, vigorous and healthy than other chicks breeds Ive gotten. Once mature, they are big beautiful, gentle birds that lay very well and continue to be very healthy.

    Great experience

    Purchased 15 chicks–speckled sussex, easter egger, cinnamon queen, buff orpington and dark brahmas. I was sent two extra–buff orpington and easter egger. All chicks arrived super healthy and on time. It was a great experience with Cackle Hatchery from start to finish, and I’m so pleased since this was my very first experience purchasing chicks.

    Dark graham hens are the best

    The dark graham hens are by far the sweetest chickens I have ever seen. These hens are the only breed to come up to me and let me pet them and pick them and they never run from me and are so calm. Mine are 9 months old now and doing great i have never had a problem at all with my dark graham hens.

    Where do I start?

    I picked up an order of chickens on April 23 of this year. You had some Blue Slate turkeys available when I got there so I thought OK I will try 6. What were the chances of getting 3 pairs, 3 toms and 3 hens? They are growing in leaps and bounds and everyone who sees them ask me where I got them. I am so PROUD to say Cackle Hatchery. Next year I will be ordering the Royal Palms turkeys also. Your staff is so knowledgeable. They looked over my order and noticed one of my chicks wasn’t a Light Brahma or a Wyandotte…they all looked the same to me so they added another chick to the order. I said it didn’t matter what kind just surprise me. Well they were right, one of the chicks is different and the added chick turned out to be a Dark Brahma so either way I was happy. I have already been going over the catalog planning next springs order. I am thinking “BROILERS”…yummy! Thank you for the high quality birds and even higher quality staff.
