Braggs Mountain Poultry

Has anyone bought birds from these people? http://www.braggsmountainpoultry.com/  They look rather tempting.  I would like to know what your experience was with them (the company) and what you thought of the birds and they grew up.  Thanks.

No but I've wondered the same thing. I thought the price was a little high for the chicks.

Do chickens think rubber humans are funny?

Good Morning,

I just posted a reply to this under another listing by Shellimac... so I won't try to add to other postings.

Hope you understand...

The gist of the reply is that we love this breed for size of bird and are ordering more this next season.

Well worth the money based on the birds themselves... not sure about egg size yet as they were just starting to lay pullets when the weather and molting hit... will keep all up to date when they start laying again.

Brit welcome-byc
Hope to hear how your fock develops.  There have been other postings on this and ones I have replied to.  I purchased one BMB hen from a lady who had ordered them and was running a flock.  She also had several other breeds and happen to be selling out after 4 years of raising and selling eggs.  She was not impressed with the breed simply because she said as they produced larger eggs they became egg bound and died.  She claimed the breed was very unstable and wasn't happy at all with them.  I was there for her Buff Orps and one of my kids happen to grab up on BMB in addition.  So far she hasn't laid anything large in the way of eggs and looks very similar to the Buff Orp.  I plan on keeping her simply because she has turned into my son's pet.  He carries her around and she is very sweet. Comes to you and eats from your hand. She went through her molt in October here and we are awaiting to see if she develops the same issues as the others this lady had.  I sure hope not, but only time will tell.

We did back on April 15th/2010!!  Very big and heavy chickens that's for sure!  they grow very fast I think.  My dad drove to (near Waco texas) to aquire the Bragg Mountain.  Males get about 3 feet tall weight is a good 15 pounds.  The females are a little smaller at 10-13 pounds.  The eggs are about 1 pound per dozen.  their extra large jumbo.  They will NOT sit on their eggs, so you'll need an incubator for hatching if your going to be doing that..  I'd highly suggest a bragg.  They make good pets too!  Good luck with all!
