I hope you have good luck with them. Truth be told I'm a little bies, brahmas are my favorites.

I know my Brahma is one of my favorites too! I have a standard Brahma but would love a Bantam Cochin and Brahma. Do you have Bantam Brahmas?

No, just the large breeds "Gold Partridge, Blue Gold Partridge, Black, Silver Laced, Gold Laced, and Lavender". I used to raise Light Brahma bantams a few years ago. But I sold out of them to make room for other breeds.

I've only had one brahma, but she was a sweetheart! One night she just didn't come back to the coop with the others, so I'm assuming she got taken by a fox or raccoon while they were free ranging in the woods.

Another question...Are Brahmas one if the breeds where the males feather out much slower than the females? The buff has most of her wing feathers already and starting to get tail stubs;so do the 2 campines. The light brahma and both dark Brahmas still just have wing stubs. Does this mean they're most likely boys?

I've never paid that close attention. I hatch around 350 chicks a year so its about all I can do to get chores done. Aside from my roughly 150 breeders as well. But the more I think about it, you may be right. It does seem like the female feather in faster than the males. It seems like the boy get in their wing, neck, and leg feathers. Then take forever to get their chest, back, and tails in. I'll have to do some closer lookin!! You maybe onto something.

Yeah, I think what Gray Farms said is true. It is for most breeds at least that I have raised, but I have only one Brahma and she is a hen.
