    I am wanting to start keeping Brahmas, would love any advice on keeping them. We will be starting them as day old chickies, we are also beginners. I looked through the older topics and didn't see anything that covered this breed in particular. I'm sorry if I missed it and am now repeating a topic.

    Though I'm figuring you're getting hatchery chicks, (since you mentioned day olds) they're normally a very big breed, very docile, and very rare. . . but hatchery type Brahmas are much smaller.

    Cackle hatchery in Missouri has some very nice Brahmas, as hatchery standards go.

    I have two of their Light Brahmas and they are very pretty birds. Perhaps not show quality, but I have seen some hatchery Brahmas that are a lot less pretty. [​IMG]
