    We LOVE our light Brahmas. Definitely our favorite chicken. However, their egg production rate isn't so high. Is there a breed similar to Light Brahmas that has a better production rate?

    Light Sussex chickens look just like light brahmas only no feathered feet. Their egg laying is very good.

    If it's the general coloring, white with black collar and tail, that's called Colombian and is available in several different breeds. Rocks, Wyandottes, Sussex, and Delawares (that last carried barring also, so not quite the same)....those will all give better production than a Brahma. None have the feathered feet, though. All but the Wyandotte have straight combs, Wyandottes have rose combs.
