OMG, It took or ever! You would think it was a pregnancy. I waited for the hatch and then 8 months for the eggs. They are breeding and laying and now FERTILE!!!! I have some of the eggs in the bator and all are fertile. I am so exicited and proud! I sit in a chair out side to watch them walk around and chatter. I was lucky enough to get some buff laced and gold laced brahma eggs from Dan Powel last year. These birds are so awesome to watch. I have never owned a brahma and I am so hooked! Here are the most recent pictures of some of my brahmas.
