    Shes 7 weeks old and towers over the other chicks. She seems big but has no comb so far. Is she just extra big? Screenshot_20170520-222117.png 20170519_201453.jpg Screenshot_20170520-222117.png 20170519_201453.jpg

    Dark Brahma are easy! That is a pretty pullet. They are huge birds and super sweet! I am sure she will be a longtime favorite for you.

    Dark Brahma males coloring is way different then females too.

    I adore my two darks. Super mellow breed and super pretty.

    Yes they tower over the others.
    They get tall during the first year then fill out (gain weight) the second year.

    Brahmas are the big,cuddly, teddy bears of the chicken world. They are LARGE but also available in bantam (small) size.
