Super Hardy

Pros: Lays more eggs in the winter than any other bird I have

Cons: Feathery Feet hard to clean

I love my Brahma hen! She is so hardy, and escaped an eagle's grasp with only a scratch on her back! Was being taken away but the eagle got distracted and dropped her. Feathery feet ar not so easy to take of though. I gave them a bath and she had bumblefoot without me even knowing. But she always gives me one egg a day including the winter time, we don't even have to put a heat lamp in the hen house for her!

I'm happy you're sweet Brahma was not carried off for good by the eagle. Poor thing -- what a scary experience! On the bright side, at least she got to "fly"!
He-He. Ya that might have been fun for her!
