    The Lohmann Brown is a commercially bred breed, used mainly for egg laying, at which they excel. They were selectively bred from New Hampshires and other brown egg laying breeds. They start laying at around 18 weeks of age, laying nearly daily.

    They are a very friendly, curious breed and make good pets and family fowl.

    "So Friendly"
    Pros - Friendly, Gentle, Very tame, Good Layers
    Cons - None!
    New to the chicken business. Got a couple of Lohman Browns! They are so gentle and very tame, they tolerate children picking them up. They lay beautiful brown eggs everyday! I couldn't ask for better chickens.[​IMG]

    "Friendly, tame, funny and gentle chickens"
    Pros - Easy to tame, friendly and a whole lot more!
    Cons - NONE
    I'm a beginner to all of this chicken stuff and the first ever chicken I got was a Silkie X Campine cockerel, he was VERY untame! But then my aunt got me these two chickens and they completely changed that cockerel. They made him friendly and tame. The two Lohmans follow me around and even copy what I do. They are brilliant egg layers throughout the whole year. They haven't been through a moult for a whole year. I've just bought some Silkie Frizzles, lets see what the Lohmans do!

    I would definitely recommend these chickens to anyone!

    Very placid and tolerates being picked up by kids multiple times a day. We call them an Isa Brown breed here in Australia.

    I like my Lohmann's. I bought them in June 2019 as my first hens after local laws changed and I built my coop. They have been great birds.

    You are right. In my knowledge they have the highest egg productivity of all breeds.

    Medium egg productivity?
    How do you dare?

    Lovely birds. I have 5 of them and they are very tolerant to each other. They do not engage in feather picking or cannibalism, as far as I have seen. They follow me in the yard and have never attempted escape or going too far away.

    I have four Lohmann Browns (my first chickens) and they have the sweetest disposition. They are very friendly to humans and each other. They have just started laying, and I'm getting four eggs a day, even though its winter. Very cold hardy birds which is great for my climate. I'll have to see about egg eating but so far no problems at all. I don't care about showing either, and I think they make a fine flock!

    had 4 Lohmann Browns as my first chickens, we have come through our first year together and its a pure love story, they are intelligent, friendly and eager for human attention. i have got 4 eggs a day most days, never had less than 3 eggs a day. they have just gone through their first moult without any problems. i didnt want them for showing so not being pure bred doesnt matter to me.
