Just wandering when she may start to lay? She must be about 25 weeks old.
Yes! I have one light brahma hen. 20 weeks old this week, no eggs yet. She's a big girl though, tame, docile and strikes me as maybe not being the "sharpest tool in the shed".
My grand daughter had originally named her "Dumplin" me I can't resist calling her Dufus. She is always the last one to get moving when the extras get thrown over the fence.
Mine isn't very big, I'm not sure if she is a Bantam or not! How would I know?
I will take a photo of her and post later!
Brahmas mature slowly so sometimes they don't lay til they are 6 months old.
All my girls together, The front 2 are 'Sam and Ella' RIR hybrids I believe. Then there is 'Satay' a barred cochin bantam and then 'Tikka' the brahma.
Are they both bantams?
Is Tikka a Brahama Bantam?
I had light brahmas 3 summers ago, and I remember them taking a bit longer then usual to start laying...
I have a pair of light brahmas, my hen is almost 4 and took 7 months for her to lay her first egg.
What about her size? I'm guessing she is 25-28 weeks old now.
The barred Cockin Bantam is the same age and she isn't much bigger, just taller.
Your Brahma is lovely.
I have 5 large fowl Buffs. I love mine. They are only 15 weeks old, so I don't look for them to lay anytime soon. But, I just love their color and their feathered feet. My roo, Bodell, is the sweetest and quietest of my roos.
My 24 week old brahma is bigger than all the rest of my birds, even my 1 1/2 year old Delaware, Comet and Cuckoo Maran. If your brahma is not bigger than your adult standard fowl, then I'm voting bantam. Also, mine isn't laying yet... none of my may 1 babies are... good luck being patient!
