    Hello, I have a friend that wants to possibly buy my son a pair of the Giant Brahmas, you know the videos that have been all over the internet the past few years.

    Well, I'm wondering what the difference is in them and the regular Brahmas that you can buy through like Tractor Supply, Rural King, etc.

    Are these birds bigger, like the videos show or are they smaller??

    The only difference between them is that the birds from a breeder will probably be a couple of lbs bigger than the hatchery birds. That said, my hatchery quality brahmas are still pretty big for chickens.
    You also have to remember those vids are and pics are done from a distinct angle to make the subject matter appear even bigger.

    Okay, so if we buy from a hatchery, who's the best? We're ordering some chicks from Hoover's Hatchery through True Value, everything that we've gotten so far has been great.

    If we purchase from (or my friend purchases) from a breeder, is there one near VA?? We are in Southwest Virginia and I realize we'd have to purchase more than 2 or 3.
