    I hear that they grow slowly but are a good dual purpose bird

    I am looking to start a dual purpose flock. How long does it take them to grow and how big do they get?

    I have never owned brahmas before.

    Thanks

    I LOVE our Brahmas! These are excellent breeds for families. We've had ours for over a year now and wouldn't mind having more of them. Their eggs are a good size and my hens lay everyday. We haven't harvested meat yet, but soon may take one. I highly recommend this breed!

    I think I am pretty well sold on getting some to add I just have to wait until the incubator is empty so I can add more to it.
