I have just finished my new chicken house and I am about ready to order some new chicks. I used to keep a flock of Barred Rocks many years ago. I enjoyed them and they are my first choice. However, I have been reading a little about Light Brahmas. They are brown egg layers also and are said to be a gentle bird. Other than that, I don't know much about them. Does anyone who has experience with both breeds give me your opinion as to how they compare? I appreciate your imput.
