Large and in charge, the stunning Dark Brahmas looks way tougher than it is. This big bird has a very gentle personality and makes for a great beginner chicken. They do great with children and can even be somewhat playful. Because of their larger size, they do take longer to mature and start laying but once fully matured, they can offer other chickens protection from smaller predators. The Dark Brahma can tolerate both cold and warm climates but does require more space and feed than your average chicken. The large hens will produce an average of 150 or more medium to large brown eggs per year. The males will get as big as 12 pounds and the females will reach around 9.5 pounds. The Dark Brahma is an APA-recognized breed and is shown in the Asiatic Class. These gentle giants live an average of 8 years or more.
