- This perfect backyard chicken breed is named for India’s Brahmaputra River. The breed probably came to the United States on Nineteenth Century sailing ships or it may have been developed here from other Asian breeds. Either way, Brahmas are enormous. Hens weigh about 10 pounds with loose fluffy feathers that make them look even bigger. Feathers cover their feet and shanks, keeping them warm in winter. Their docile, gentle, and quiet temperament makes them one of the best breeds around children. Hens lay about 200 medium-sized brown eggs annually, sometimes go broody, and are attentive mothers.
APPROX. 200 MEDIUM EGGS/YEAR | EGG COLOR: BROWN | MATURE WT: MALE 18 LBS. FEMALE 14 LBS.
