Valley Hatchery’s Buff Brahma Chicks: Gentle Giants for Every Flock
Valley Hatchery is excited to offer Buff Brahma Chicks, a breed renowned for its impressive size and gentle temperament. Known as one of the largest chicken breeds, rivaled only by the Jersey Giant, these birds are surprisingly docile and friendly, making them an ideal choice for families and those new to chicken keeping. Their protective nature benefits other breeds in the flock, safeguarding them from smaller predators. Recognized by the American Standard of Perfection in 1924 and belonging to the Asiatic Class, the Buff Brahmas are a blend of historical legacy and modern charm.
Originally shipped to America and England, Buff Brahmas contributed to the 19th-century “Hen Fever”, captivating poultry enthusiasts across both nations. Originating from Asia, these chickens are robust, all-season birds, capable of forming strong bonds with their caretakers. While their significant size leads to a slower maturation and onset of egg-laying, the wait is worthwhile. Expect the large hens to lay an average of 150 medium to large brown eggs yearly. Males can reach up to 12 pounds and females approximately 9.5 pounds, offering a majestic presence in any setting. With a lifespan extending over 8 years, these chickens are more than just pets; they are long-standing companions.
The Buff Brahmas’ striking appearance is characterized by their predominantly buff coloring, complemented by black tail feathers and black-infused neck feathers. These gentle giants also feature feathered legs, adding to their unique and captivating appearance. In addition to their beauty, they are winter hardy, ensuring resilience in various climates. At Valley Hatchery, we take pride in providing the healthiest and happiest day-old Buff Brahma chicks, all backed by our live-arrival guarantee. Whether you’re a seasoned poultry enthusiast or just beginning your journey, our Buff Brahmas are an excellent addition to any flock, combining beauty, personality, and practicality.
