    Here are some pictures of my 9 week old Brahmas. There are Light, Dark,Buff and Black in this hatch. Plus one that is all together different. I don't know what color to call her, But I love her color. Any guess on the color?

    Your odd-colored one looks like a cross between a Buff and a Dark. Pretty birds!

    That's interesting. She's going in with my layers as she is so sweet. She loves to be in your lap and go to sleep. I wish another black had hatched. Can't wait to see their adult feathering.

    She is very pretty-looks calico! There's a good name for her, very descriptive.

    I love brahmas! I noticed how red the dirt is in the Rocky Elvira pic. Is that the colour of your soil, or is that just the way it looks in the pic?

    I think it's a mixture of Georgia clay, shavings, dirt and oak leaves. The Coop is under a row of oak trees so they will have shade in the summer. With all their stratching the soil is mixed up pretty well. The only problem has been the acorns, as these trees drop a truckload of them. I rake them up about once a week in the fall. Too bad it not a money crop. Wish my pecan trees dropped pecans as well as the oak trees drop their acorns.
