    I have read about the bramahs. Does one color of bramah get larger than others?

    I don't think the color is going to matter as much as the breed line

    We have a light brahma roo that's about 2ft tall but we have a Maylay that's almost 3ft....but he can't run free with other roos or it wouldn't be good...

    thanks, all I bought some gersey giants and light bramahs from ideal hatchery on 9/9/09 and I see I had made the right choices of breed. I hope they get 3ft tall like that one you have, the hawks around here will think twice about swooping into my 20x50 run for a taste
