Product Overview

One of the largest dual-purpose American breeds, Brahma is a show bird like no other. The breed's origin is veiled in mystery as the first birds appeared on American soil in the 19th century and quickly became the primary American meat breed up until the 1930s. A relatively slow rate of maturity took Brahma out of competition with more productive breeds. Still, with large bodies, over 10lbs in roosters, and fair egg-laying abilities, Brahma maintained popularity with some breeders across the borders. Feathery legs and pea comb give them a unique look, combined with tame temper and hardiness puts them on every chicken breeders wish list.

As the exotic look of standard Brahma wasn't attractive enough, breeders created a bantam version that weighs around 2lbs. These are just two varieties of the many chickens for sale here at Valley Hatchery.
